Teaser: If you have had problems with carrot flies before, this is the variety to try!
Description:

 

This British bred Nantes type carrot that's almost fly resistant due to its low level of chlorogenic acid, which is the main phenolic compound in the skin of carrots that attracts carrot flies in the first place. Attractive smooth skinned blunt ended cylindrical roots average 12-15 cm (5-6") in length and are naturally succulent and sweet tasting. So let us say it again, "If you have had problems with carrot flies before, then this variety is the one you need to try!"

  • Packet of 200 sds $2.49
  • 1000 seeds/$9.95
  • 5000 seeds/$35.00

How To Grow 850 seeds/gram Carrots will grow well in any open, wellcultivated, deep garden soil. As the seed is quite small, mix it with some sand when sowing. Once soil temperature rises above 7.5 C (45 F), sow seed about 7-15 mm (1/4-1/2") deep in rows spaced 45-60 cm (18- 24") apart. Stagger several sowings over the next few weeks. Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the 2 week germination period but avoid crusting over the soil as this will greatly reduce the number of seedlings that emerge. Thin the seedlings during the early stages of growth until they are 5 cm (2") apart. Keep the plants evenly watered, weed free and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Harvest any time after the carrot roots develop good colour.
