Organic Carrot - Autumn King
This is the most popular main crop carrot. It produces a yield of long thick roots with good colour and flavour that can be pulled as required during winter.
Early sowings cam be made in a cold frame or under cloches. In mild areas, sow in October under glass for really early spring use. Alternatively, sow outdoors very thinly in drills 1.5cm deep with 25cm between rows. Carrot fly is attracted to thinnings, so try to avoid thinning at all. If plants are overcrowded, pull alternate roots when small and use whole.
