Beetroot is low in fat, full of vitamins and minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants. Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value; especially the greens, which are rich in calcium,iron and vitamins A and C. Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and potassium. The greens should not be overlooked; they can be cooked up and enjoyed in the same way as spinach.
Beetroot grows well in loose soil so that the roots can grow deep.Sow the seeds and cover with a thin layer of soil. Seed starts to grow in 5 – 8 days. Replant with a spacing of 2.5 centimetres between plants, 35 to 45 centimetres between rows. Water regularly and it takes about 60 days to grow to a size of 4 cm in diameter. When grown large it becomes tough and fibrous. Best colour and flavour occurs in cool condition and bright sun. In warm weather they produce light colour, less sugar and pronounced colour zoning in roots
