Mr Fothergill’s Carrot Autumn King 2 Seeds
€2.10 “Price excl. VAT: €2.10”
One of the best maincrop varieties. It has a deep consistent orange/red colour and conical roots. It can also be grown as a late cropping variety. It is resistant to splitting and stores well when left in the ground. It has great flavour and is very high yielding.
A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.
Outdoors: sow thinly, March-July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1′) between rows. Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: June-November. Roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
