Beetroot Seeds - Rouge Crapaudine

Beta vulgaris

“Also known as ‘Toad Beetroot’, this variety is the oldest still in existence (estimated at 1000 years!). Crapaudine translates as female toad in french. It’s not surprising then, that the skin is very rough and cracked, almost like tree bark. The carrot-shaped roots are extremely sweet and very dark, almost black in colour and the stalks are red tinged and are great in salads. Renowned for its superior flavour, ‘Rouge Crapaudine’ is sought after by chefs around the globe. Dobies are proud to offer you the chance to grow this exquisite heritage favourite.”

Choose a sunny spot and sow seed thinly outdoors in warm, moist, weed-free drills (straight shallow grooves) made 30cm (12") apart and then cover with about 1.25cm (½") of soil. Alternatively, sow more closely in containers for smaller roots. Sow at regular intervals late April-early June. Thin out seedlings to 5-7.5cm (2-3") apart. Harvest June-December.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
