We planted some 'Chioggia' beetroot seeds, the following were the days to maturity for these beetroot. Being in Australia, all dates are written in the format of Day/Month/Year.
Seed Planted 16/10/2016 Day 0
Seed germinated 24/10/2016 Day 8
First harvest 02/01/2017 Day 78
These dates are when we harvested the roots, I normally would have started harvesting the leaves long before this but didn't record these dates this year.
I could have harvested smaller beets earlier, or larger beets later, and these dates could change significantly if grown under different conditions. They were
simply what happened in my garden this year. It gives a
reasonable baseline for comparison against other plants grown in my
garden this year.
