Beets are a cool-season crop, tolerating frost or even light freezes. Highest quality is obtained when temperatures are between 55-70°F. Hot weather produces white bands in the root.
Seeding begins in early April and continues until late July. Seeds will germinate at temperatures between 40-80°F. Beets will go to seed, or bolt, if exposed to 2-3 weeks of temperatures below 50°F.
