Description – A high quality variety producing small cylindrical roots with a rich deep orange red colour and almost no core. Carrot Amsterdam Forcing is very quick to mature, ideal for early forcing in frames, cloches etc. to produce delicious finger carrots. To produce quick crops out of doors from summer to autumn sow at 14 day intervals through the spring and early summer.
Sowing – Sow seeds from late winter to mid summer in drills 1cm (½in) deep, spaced 30cm (12in) apart.
Growing – As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, start thinning them out so they are finally 2cm (1in) apart.
Aftercare – The last thinnings will provide tender roots just large enough to be used. Harvest summer to autumn as soon as the roots are big enough to pull. For early carrots sow in a cold frame or under cloches during February and March.
Harvest – July to November
