Carrot - Romance F1
This is a fast maturing 'nantes' type with uniform roots up to 20cm long that resist cracking and are wonderfully sweet tasting. They can be pulled in early summer as 'baby' carrots or left to mature for later harvests that store well.
Sow outdoors thinly, from March to June, where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm between rows. Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly from the row, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established. Harvest from July to December. Roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
