90 days — 'Golden Self-Blanching' is a very old standard variety whose synonyms include 'Dwarf Golden Self-Blanching' and 'Burpee's Golden Self-Blanching'. The plants are stocky, solid, thick, with the stalks that, as its name implies, blanch easily. It is vigorous growing with upright medium green foliage. The roots are round, smooth and have good inner quality with high yields.

It was introduced as 'Golden Self-Blanching' by the now defunct Johnson & Stokes Seed Company in 1883. In their 1890 catalog, they described it as, "Unlike other self-blanching varieties, it is a good keeper. The stocks grow vigorously, with large ribs, very thickly and closely set. It is entirely self-blanching, without any banking up or covering whatever, even the outer ribs assuming a yellowish-white color of a very fresh and pleasing appearance." Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 200 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Start transplants indoors from February through April. Soil must be kept above 55ºF but below 85ºF. Germination is very slow – up to three weeks. Keep moist but not wet.

Transplant out when plants are three to five inches tall after danger of frost has passed. They like rich soil loaded with organic matter with a pH of about 6.5. They are a very heavy feeder.
