Ruby Queen's round, smooth-skinned beets are exceptionally tender with an earthy beet flavor. Ringless and deep red, they retain their color when canned or pickled.
An early maturing variety, it performs in poor soils and holds its shape when crowded.
Ruby Queen prefers cooler temperatures. Beet seeds can be sown in the spring for an early summer harvest or in late summer for a fall harvest.
For the best germination rate, soak beet seeds in lukewarm water for 24 hours prior to planting.
