A round, smooth, cylindrical red beetroot prized for flavour and being early. Spinel is an unusual ‘baby’ beetroot in that it isn’t small at maturity like most ‘baby’ beets but can be left to mature for full-grown roots. It forms a golf ball size while the leaves are still small (other varieties require substantial tops before the edible part forms). Start harvesting Spinel baby beets a week to 10 days sooner than most varieties. It has a single taproot and narrow, tight crown. 250 seeds.
