Botanical name:
Beta vulgaris


Very tasty, traditional beetroot variety with up to 20 cm long, cylindrical roots - ideal for cutting slices. Cylindra was introduced in the late 19th century and is also known under the name Formanova. It is smooth-skinned with a very fine texture
and has an earthy caramel taste and a mild flavor in every phase of growth. The roots do not tend to lignify and are very well suited for pickling. Also the sweet stems and leaves can be used in the kitchen. .

Package content: 300 Cylindra beetroot seeds
Sowing and cultivation:

Sow outdoors from April to June. A couple of seeds should be sown together around 2.5 cm deep. Sow in rows of about 40 cm distance. Beetroot prefers sandy-loamy loose soil that should not be acidic. Cylindra can be harvested after about 60 days. Tip: Twist off the leaves after harvesting, rather than cutting them off, so the beets do not "bleed" as much.
