Attilio is an ideal replacement for Trevor F1. It is a Nantes type with a sweet and succulent taste, with good colour and texture. This variety is particularly tasty in summer salads or in winter casseroles. It has a high tolerance to cavity spot and a high resistance to breaking and silvering.

Carrots are one of the least demanding of crops and probably the widest grown vegetable in British gardens. It does however have its drawback, and that must be the possibility of being attacked by carrot fly.
