Carrot - White Satin
This is the finest, smooth, white-skinned and fleshed carrot, with a crunchy but juicy flavour of similar sweetness to a standard maincrop orange variety. It is best grown as a maincrop, for long cylindrical roots, delicious in winter stews, soups or eaten raw.
Sow thinly, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart when large enough to handle, to reduce risk of carrot root fly attack. Keep well-watered for best quality roots. Keep any exposed crowns of carrots covered with soil to avoid them going green.
