A unique carrot with low levels of a chemical that carrot fly larvae need for survival. This means they avoid it like the plague. Bad for them, great for the gardener! Heavy crops of slender, richly coloured, sweet carrots are a further bonus.
How to sow
Sow thinly, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart.
How to grow
Thin seedlings carefully 5cm (2in) apart, when large enough to handle to further reduce the risk of carrot root fly attack.
To continue the organic life cycle of these seeds, gardeners should follow recognised organic growing methods, avoiding the use of artificial fertilisers and pesticides.
