Daucus carota sativa
Very high quality nantes type carrot bred by Steve Solomon and maintained here at Birdland. Flavour is amazing and is up there with the best hybrids available. Excellent for main season and over wintering. However germination is low and we normally wouldn’t be offering this for that reason. We hope that further breeding work will solve this problem. If you want to give it a go just be aware that you will need to sow your seed at least 3 times as thick as normal. For market gardeners we recommend using a radish or similar plate with your direct seeder. Approx. 750 seeds/gm.
Sow Spring to early Autumn
