Carrot - Autumn King
This is an excellent variety all round, featuring long, large, cylindrical roots with a lovely colour and excellent flavour. It is highly recommended for eating fresh in the autumn, raw or cooked.
Prepare the soil well by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones. Make 1cm drills in the soil spaced 30cm apart. Separate the seed tapes at the perforation and if necessary cut to the desired length. Water the open drill so that the seed tape sticks to the soil well. Place the seed tape in the seed drill along each row. Cover the seed tapes and gently firm the soil down using the back of a rake. Water regularly and keep moist but not over wet. Harvest roots through the autumn. Loosen the soil around the roots with a fork before lifting to avoid damaging.
