    Umuthi Beetroot Sprouting Seeds

    Beetroot seeds (Beta vulgaris) are light coloured, rough textured seeds. They produce bright red sprouts which have a mild earthy taste, wonderful colour, and grow into beautiful lime green microgreens with deep red veins. Add to salads, sandwiches, as a garnish or enjoy on their own.

    One of the favourite sprouts in health circles, beetroot seeds are reported to increase oxygen uptake at the cellular level, reduce blood pressure and protect the cardiovascular system.

    Sizes: 50g, 300g or 1kg (Vac Pack).


      • Very low in saturated fat and cholesterol
      • Good source of vitamin C, Iron and Magnesium
      • Very good food source of dietary fibre, Folate, Potassium and Manganese
      • Vacuum packed for total freshness
      • Natural and untreated
      • Non-GMO

      Germination: 6-8 days depending on growing conditions

      Tips: Make sure your soaking water is slightly warm, or at the very least kept at room temperature (especially if weather conditions are cold) as cold water may shock the seeds. Ensure your rinsing water is also not too cold as cold water may slow down the germination process. We recommend keeping the seeds in a warm place while they sprout too. And don't harvest too soon: they can take anywhere from 6 to 12 days.

      • Shopping online is much like shopping at a brick and mortar store. When shopping with Essentially Natural you can simply 'Add to Cart' your selected items and quantities and 'Check Out' when ready. During the checkout process you can list your delivery address details (if you haven't created an account already), then choose your preferred delivery method, then select your preferred method of payment.
        • To add products to your cart, either use the categories to search for items, or use the search bar. Once you have found what you want, simply click on our gold 'Add to Cart' button to add any products to your shopping cart.
        • You can click on your trolley icon at any time to view items in your cart and be taken to the checkout page.
        • On the cart page you'll see an overview of the products in your cart. You can add or remove quantities or remove items as desired. The shopping cart will immediately update.  
        • Checkout is completed in 3 simple steps:
          1. 'Sign In' to your account, or 'Create an Account' or 'Checkout as a Guest' if this is the first time you're shopping with us. There are many advantages to creating a customer account; primary among these is ease of use of our shop in future, including tracking your order progress. However checking out as one time guest simply entails registering your delivery details.
          2. Choose a shipping option: select your preferred delivery method from the listed options (these options are offered based on what is available to your specified delivery address).
          3. Please select your preferred payment method: make direct payment via EFT or via secure online payments portal, Peach Payments*: by debit card, cheque card or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club), Instant EFT, MasterPass or MobiCred.

    Beetroot

    I am very disappointed in the beetroot seeds. They took a long while to show any life and then only 3 sprouted out of about 200 seeds. Alfalfa did well.

    Great

    I bought this being sooo excited because it's a struggle to get beet greens. I got confused by the instructions on the packaging, so it would be great if you could have a blog post with simplified instructions. I am still looking forward to growing them lol once I figure it out.

    I love the service
