Carrot - Sweet Candle
This variety produces an exceptional tasting and high yielding carrot with uniform, cylindrical shaped roots with rounded tips. The carrots are rich orange and have an extra sweet flavour. The fruits are ideal for exhibitors.
Sow the seed from April to June direct into the growing site, 2cm deep in rows 30cm apart. If possible sow carefully so that thinning is not necessary. 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 apart. Young Carrots can always be pulled alternately to 'thin as you eat'. Ready to harvest from June to November.
