Carrot - Purple Haze
Purple carrots are higher in anti-oxidants than orange carrots so are more nutritious to eat. This variety not only looks great, it tastes good too, adding colour to salads or cooked meals.
Sow the seed from April to July 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.
