Description

  • Long-established favourite with thick, dark orange roots.
  • Good for pots and containers.
  • Shorter roots less likely to split in shallow soil.

This variety has well withstood the tests of time and remains a firm customer favourite. Crops produce a rich thick, dark orange root with a sweet flavour and refreshing crunch.

Reliable and easy to grow, this is one worth trying out if growing carrots for the first time. 

With its short yet attractive roots, there’s less risk of roots splitting if you have shallow soils.

How to Guide

Sow outdoors

April-June: Sow thinly 1⁄2in (1cm) deep in shallow pre-watered drills, in soil that hasn’t been manured in the last 12 months. Keep soil moist at all times.  Thin to 5-8cm(2-3 in) apart. Avoid crushing the leaves as the scent attracts carrot root fly.

 

Tips

Use fleece to keep low flying carrot root fly from your crop. Roots store well if cleaned and packed in boxes of dry sand or compost.
