Early Wonder Beets Beta Vulgaris Seeds. Beta vulgaris. Sometimes known as Early Wonder Tall Top. 48-60 days. Tall vigorous dark-green, 16 to 18 inch tops tinged with maroon, excellent for greens. Dark purplish-red 3 inch flattened globe bunching beet for home or market gardens. Used as a first early variety of beet for mid-summer sowing and storage.


Beets are a cool season vegetable crop. This root veggie grows quickly and has many different varieties which showcase deep red, yellow or white bulbs of different shapes. They can survive frost and almost freezing temperatures, which makes them a good choice for northern gardeners and an excellent long-season crop.


A soil pH above 5.5–6 is best, otherwise growth will be stunted. Beets are a good indicator of soil pH.

Till in aged manure before planting. Beets require especially good nutrition and a high phosphorus level to germinate. Go easy on nitrogen however, an excess will cause sprawling greens and tiny bulbs beneath the soil.

Wait until soil reaches 50 degrees before planting.

Plant seeds ½ inch deep and 1-2 inches apart.

Make sure soil remains moist for germination.

In zones with low moisture and rainfall, soak the seeds for 24 hours before planting.

Early crop can be planted in March/April, and late crop anytime from June to September. Successive plantings are also possible as long as the weather doesn’t exceed 75 degrees F. Space plantings about 20 days apart.

Winter crops are a definite possibility in Zone 9 and above.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
