Answer: Beets need cool weather to do well. In Florida beets do best if planted in October, November and December. Some <br>varieties you could try are Early Wonder, Detroit Dark Red,<br>and Cylindra. Add plenty of compost to your soil and work it in well. Add a small amount of an 8-8-8 fertilize. Soak seed in water overnight before planting. Beets require ample moisture at planting time or the seed will not germinate.
