This variety has been bred for its resistance to carrot root fly. It is a Nantes type with smooth skinned orange roots that have a sweet flavour - especially when lifted early.

  • Growing Instructions:

    Sow from March to July at monthly intervals for continuous crops in a well prepared sunny spot. Sow thinly 13mm deep in broad drills 30cm apart. Thinning is not necessary for 'bunching carrots' but for larger roots thin them to 25mm apart. Keep weed free and well watered but do not overwater as this will encourage too much leafy top-growth. Later sowings will produce carrots in autumn which can be lifted and stored in trays of dry sand or compost in the shed or garage.
