Description – An extremely reliable variety which is quick to mature. Medium length, uniform roots with a rich, fresh internal colour. Suitable for early sowing in frames.
Sowing – Sow thinly, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2in) apart when large enough to handle to reduce attack from carrot root fly. Thinnings will provide tender roots large enough to be used in the kitchen. Can also be sown under cloches January/February for earlier cropping.
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 – July to December
