Carrot - Sweet Candle F1
This is a rich orange skinned and fleshed, coreless, extra sweet flavoured Japanese bred variety with smooth skinned, cylindrical, blunt ended roots. It is excellent for late summer/autumn cropping, for the kitchen or on the showbench.
Sow seeds from April to June, at 4 week intervals. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart when large enough to handle, to reduce risk of carrot fly attack. Keep well watered for best quality roots.
