Description

One of the best maincrop varieties. It has a deep consistent orange/red colour and conical roots. It can also be grown as a late cropping variety. It is resistant to splitting and stores well when left in the ground. It has great flavour and is very high yielding.

Outdoors: sow thinly, March-July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1′) between rows. Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: June-November. Roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.

Tip: If carrot fly is a problem, delay sowing until May. Keep well watered during dry spells, as this will prevent the roots from splitting.
