Organic Carrot - Flyaway F1
This is a mid-season, stump-rooted variety with excellent and smooth skin. It is tolerant to carrot fly as it is less attractive to the egg-laying flies.
Early sowings can be made in a cold frame or under cloches. In mild areas, sow in October under glass for really early spring use. Alternatively, sow very thinly outdoors in drills 1.5cm deep with 25cm between rows. Carrot fly is attracted to thinning, so try to avoid thinning at all. If plants are overcrowded, pull alternate roots when small and use whole.
