Another of our own introductions and now our biggest seller. Semi-long roots with smooth cream white skin and flesh. Finest flavour in our opinion.
WHEN TO SOW
Mid-March to April
WHERE TO SOW
Sow the seed thinly direct into the growing site 2cm (Ã‚Â½") deep in rows 45cm (18") apart. A stone-free tilth is preferable.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Do not transplant seedlings. As soon as seedlings appear they should be gradually thinned until plants are 10cm (4") apart. Hoe regularly but ensure you do not damage the crown or the root.
Early sowings can be slow to germinate so a marker can be sown of a quick maturing vegetable such as Radish.
