Produces an exceptionaly tasting and high yielding carrot with uniform cylindrical shaped roots with rounded tips. Rich orange in colour with an extra sweet flavour. Excellent for late summer and ideal for exhibitors. When to Sow: April to June. Where to Sow: Sow thinly direct into the growing site 2cm (¾") deep in rows 30cm (12") apart. If possible sow carefully so that thinning is not necessary. What to do Next: Carrot fly is attracted by the smell whilst thinning. If you have to thin the seedlings, do so in the evening. Water before thinning and remove all the debris. Do not transplant. Aim for roots 5-7cm (2-3") apart. Young Carrots can always be pulled alternately to 'thin as you eat'. Maturity: July to November. Handy Tip: A good variety for exhibition use. Try making holes with a bar, filling with sandy compost and sowing seeds at each station for large specimen carrots. Notes: Do not transplant. Nutritional Value: High in antioxidant beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A in the body.
