Over 500 Organic Beet Seeds contained in 275 Beet Seed Clusters. The Detroit Dark Red Beet, a popular heirloom variety, grows to a sweet and tender 3 inches round garnet-colored beetroot, with leafy beet green tops. Fifty five days from planting, early beets will be ready to harvest. Pick intermittently, as you will find that some beets are larger than others and ready to eat, and some beets are closer together, thus harvest some beets and leave the others to continue growing. Pickle your homegrown beets into probiotic rich fermented foods, such as, sparkling beet kombucha, sweet beet lemonade, and naturally fermented pickled beets. Bake beet chips and even beet chocolate desserts. Scoby Life Organic Beet Seeds packet contains over 500 seeds in 275 seed clusters, as promised, and the packet can be used as a snazzy row marker. Many people do not realize that beet seeds are contained in naturally occurring seed clusters. There are actually 2 to 3 tiny seeds per cluster. Our product contains at least 275 seed clusters, each of which contain 2 to 3 beet seeds, on average. Thus, our Scoby Life Heirloom Organic Beet Seeds packet contains over 500, and possibly over 600, seeds that cannot be counted unless it were possible to open every tiny cluster, which would be tedious, and opening the clusters could possibly inhibit germination when planted in the garden. When the seed clusters are planted, the individual seeds will sprout bountifully and it is possible, under good weather and soil conditions, to have a high yield germination of 80 to 85 percent of over 500 beet seeds.
