Heirloom heritage Beta Vulgaris craca, Beetroot - Albina Ice grow something unusual from seed a truly white beetroot which does not bleed when cut. Excellent flavour and texture. Wavy topped leaves can be used like spinach


Albina Ice is known for growing to a height of approximately 0.9 cm (0.35 inches).


Albina Ice Beetroot is normally quite a low maintenance plant and is normally very easy to grow - great for beginner gardeners!


Plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Albina Ice is thought of as half hardy, so remember to protect this plant from frosts and low temperatures. Ideally plant in loamy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of6.5 and 7.0 as Albina Ice likes to be in weakly acidic soil to neutral soil.


Direct sow beetroot seeds outdoors from March to July in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well-drained soil. Sow beetroot seeds thinly in shallow drills at a depth of 2cm (3/4") and 4cm (1.5") apart. Germination will usually take 12 to 24 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 10cm (4") apart.


When growing beetroot, water as necessary to prevent the soil from drying out and keep the plants cool and moist. This will help to avoid plants running to seed. Roots can be lifted at any time from June to October once they have reached 1" diameter or more. Harvest any remaining crops before the first frosts. Beetroot can be stored until mid spring in boxes of moist sand in a frost free shed or garage.


Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
