Description – A unique carrot with low levels of a chemical that carrot fly larvae need for survival. This means they avoid it like the plague. Bad for them, great for the gardener! Heavy crops of slender, richly coloured, sweet carrots are a further bonus.
Sowing – Sow thinly, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart.
Growing – Thin seedlings carefully 5cm (2in) apart, when large enough to handle to further reduce the risk of carrot root fly attack.
Aftercare – To continue the organic life cycle of these seeds, gardeners should follow recognised organic growing methods, avoiding the use of artificial fertilisers and pesticides.
Harvest – August to October
