Organic Carrot - Jeanette F1
This early maturing Nantes type carrot produces smooth skinned, conical roots with a rich orange colour. Specially bred for increased vigour, improved garden performance and flavour, Carrot 'Jeanette' has good pest and disease resistance making it ideal for organic gardeners. The vigorous foliage also makes for easier pulling of the 20cm roots when harvesting. Height: 30cm. Spread: 15cm.
Carrots prefer a deep, rich, well-drained soil which does not contain fresh manure or compost. Sow seeds from spring to mid-summer in drills 1cm deep, spaced 30cm apart. As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, start thinning them out so that they are finally 1cm apart. The last thinnings should provide tender roots just large enough to be used. Harvest in late summer and autumn. The roots can be lifted and stored between layers of peat or sand in a frost-free place for winter use.
