This carrot fly resistant variety has deservedly Garden Merit for its ability to produce a reliable yield of flavoursome, crunchy carrots without being munched by troublesome pests
This performs well in the US climate, producing a good crop whatever the weather
Careful breeding has ensured these carrots maintain a rich orange colouring, natural sweetness, blunt ends and smooth skin
Direct sow carrot seed outdoors, in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil
Carrots dislike freshly manured soils so seed beds will be choosed well
Sow carrot seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½in) in drills 30cm (12″) apart. Germination will take 10 to 20 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 5cm (2″) apart. Where space is limited, growing carrots in containers will also produce a worthwhile crop
Water well to encourage germination. Once germinated, carrots should be watered only when necessary to keep the soil moist as excessive water may encourage leaf growth instead of roots. During growth, the carrot roots may be earthed up to prevent green crowns developing
