A popular late cropping variety producing heavy yields of long thick roots. Stores well and can also be left in the ground and pulled as required through the winter.
Sow April-July direct in to the soil in drills 2cm deep and rows 30cm apart.
Try to sow as thinly as you can to avoid having to pull up seedlings which can attract carrot fly. You want to try to have carrots about 5cm apart. You can pull alternate carrots early and have as baby carrots then leaving the rest to grow on to mature size at the correct spacing
Try growing carrots with leeks or spring onions to deter carrot fly.
