Carrot - Cosmic Purple
These unusual tapering, 18cm purple skinned roots are sweet, tender and flavoursome with coreless orange flesh and are delicious eaten both cooked or raw in a salad.
Sow thinly, 13mm deep in broad drills 30cm apart. Thin seedlings as necessary, probably unnecessary for 'baby roots', but to 2.5-5cm apart for larger roots for storing. Keep well-watered for best quality roots. Protect with enviromesh or erect a 50cm barrier around the crop against carrot fly.
