€4.25 “Price excl. VAT: €4.25”
A high quality, deliciously sweet carrot, very reliable and ideal for ‘baby’ carrots. These sweet, tasty roots resist running to seed and store well. Excellent source of vitamin A and antioxidants.
Outdoors: sow thinly, February-July, where they are to crop, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30 cm (1 feet) 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. ‘Baby’ carrots are best lifted when 5 cm (2-inch) long. Mature roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand. Hints and Tips: If carrot fly is a problem, delay sowing until May. Keep well watered during dry spells, as this will prevent the roots from splitting. Care and Cultivation: Regular sowings, made every three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply of young roots.
