Description – Approximate root length: 12-15cms (5-6 inches).
British bred with partial Carrot Fly resistance, due to lower levels of chlorogenic acid within the developing roots. Carrot Flyaway is naturally sweet, producing early blunt ended roots, with good skin and flesh colour. Tried and tested by thousands of T&M gardeners.
This variety is based on original breeding work carried out by Dr Bob Ellis and sponsored by MAFF funding.
Sowing – Carrots prefer a deep, rich, well drained soil which does not contain fresh manure or compost. Sow seeds spring 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 that they are finally 1cm (4in) apart.
Aftercare – The last thinnings should provide tender roots just large enough to be used. Harvest summer and autumn.
Harvest – August to October
