45 to 80 days — 'Cylindra' beets, also known as 'Butter Slicer' and 'Formanova', are sweet, tender, and smooth skinned with small, edible, reddish green tops. This Danish variety, as its name suggests, produces a beet that is elongated, reaching four to eight inches in length, making it ideal for slicing. As a slicer, it produces many more uniform slices than standard globe-shaped varieties. Each packet contains four grams which is approximately 200 seeds. Each ounce is about 620 seeds.

Planting Instructions: In a well-drained location that receives six to eight hours of full sun daily, sow seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep and one inch apart. The rows should be spaced 12 to 24 inches. Make sure that you have loosened the soil to one foot deep and rake smooth.

Firm the soil over the seeds and keep moist, making sure that the young roots do not dry out, until seedlings appear. When plants are 1½ to 3-inches tall, thin to three inches apart. The “thinnings” can be eaten as “baby greens.” Water weekly (or as required) in dry weather. Control weeds.
