Carrot - Yellowstone
This is a very sweet variety with unusually coloured long roots with great flavour and colour. It is very vigorous and performs well in most soils and stores well. Excellent source of vitamin A and antioxidants.
Sow outdoors thinly from March to July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile 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 November. Roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
