Until orange carrots were bred back in the 16th Century, all carrots were purple! This ancestral treasure produces smooth 20cm roots, with bright purple coloured skin and coreless orange flesh. Sweet and delicious, the rich colour contrast adds visual drama to your dishes.
Sow direct in a Sunny, well drained position. Cover, firm down and moisten. Thin after 4 weeks. Sow successive crops at 4-5 weekly intervals.
Cultivate soil well before sowing as deep, well-drained soils give best results. Add Yates Thrive Natural Blood & Bone to soil before sowing to help ensure a good crop. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Great companion plant for Beans, coriander, cucumber, marigold, lettuce, peas, radish, rosemary, sage & tomato. To aid germination, maintain even moisture by laying a plank of wood over row. Remove after germination. Don't over-fertilise the ground as this may produce split roots.
