The first variety to have tolerance to Carrot Fly as it is far less attractive to the egg laying flies. Broad shouldered, stump ended roots with smooth skin and excellent colour. Nantes type for mid-season.
Seed Count: 500
WHEN TO SOW
Late March to Early May
WHERE TO SOW
Sow thinly direct into the growing site 2cm (¾") deep in rows 30cm (12") apart. If possible, sow carefully so that thinning is not necessary.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
If you have to thin the seedlings, do so in the evening. Water before thinning and remove all the debris. Do not transplant. Aim for roots 5-7 cm (2-3") apart. Young Carrots can be pulled alternately to 'thin as you eat'.
Early July onwards
Do not grow Carrots in freshly manured ground as this may cause fangy roots.
High in antioxidant beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A in the body.
