Carrot All Year Round

Overview

Botanical Name: Daucus carota

A splendid maincrop carrot, producing long, pointed roots. Its fine colouring and excellent flavour make this one of the most appetising of carrots. Ideal for keeping. Grows well in an open position on light, rich soil that has not been recently manured.

We hope you enjoy these carrot seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
