The fastest of all carrot varieties to mature, this is a highly popular variety and one of the best choices for early and late sowings. Grown under glass in a cold frame or greenhouse it can be 'forced' for super-early crops. Pull young to enjoy their tender sweet flavour at its best.

  • Growing Instructions:Sow sparingly direct into shallow drills and cover lightly with soil. Cover early and late sowings with cloches. Thin seedlings carefully to 2cm apart, watering beforehand to avoid disturbing nearby roots and working in the evening when carrot fly are less numerous. To further avoid carrot fly attacks grow crops under horticultural fleece. The thinnings can be eaten raw, sprinkled on salads as a tender delicately-flavoured garnish.

  • Sow: March-May

  • Harvest: June onwards
