Carrot – F1 Flyaway


We just love this early carrot which has an excellent sweet flavour and deep orange colour. So far it has proven to have very good resistance to carrot root fly, especially if you inter sow it with our ‘North Holland Blood Red’ spring onion. If you can resisit picking them young you will get beautiful long cylindrical carrots about 12-15cm in length…..Brian and Abi

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Latin Name Daucus carota subsp. sativus

Sowing Instructions – Sow carrot seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½in) in drills 30cm (12″) apart. Germination will take 10 to 20 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 5cm (2″) apart. Where space is limited, growing carrots in containers will also produce a worthwhile crop.

Hints and Tips – Water well to encourage germination. Once germinated, carrots should be watered only when necessary to keep the soil moist as excessive water may encourage leaf growth instead of roots. During growth, the carrot roots may be earthed up to prevent green crowns developing.

Cover later carrot sowings with fleece or fine netting, and remove all thinnings from the site to minimise carrot fly infestation. Early varieties may be lifted when required from 9 weeks onwards, while maincrops can be harvested from 12 weeks after their sowing date. Pull a single carrot first to assess the size of the roots. If the soil is dry, lifting carrots can be made easier by watering beforehand. Roots can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to 4 months.

Number of seeds – Approx 250
