An extremely popular, well established, early variety. The blunt ended roots have outstanding flavour, producing high quality 'finger' carrots. It’s known as the ‘classic’ carrot and has good uniform roots. Great colour and a crisp texture makes this variety an excellent addition to summer salads.
Approx. 2000 seeds.
Sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop, 1.5cm (1/2”) deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1’) between rows.
Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly from the row, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established.
Regular sowings made every three weeks will ensure a continuous supply of young roots.
