CARROT AUTUMN KING PELLETED SEEDS

A splendid reliable main crop mid-late crisp carrot, producing large, long conical roots with an even internal colour. Its excellent flavour and storage characteristics make this one of the most popular and widely grown main crop varieties attaining huge sizes if left to fully mature. Also known as “Flakkee” in European markets.  Grows particularly well in an open position on light, rich soil that has not been recently manured. 68 days from germination.

Cultivation Advice CARROT AUTUMN KING PELLETED SEEDS

  • Dig or till the carrot bed deeply when the soil is on the dry side to avoid making lumps.
  • Work the soil to a fine texture 15-25cm (6-10 in.) deep to allow the carrot roots to grow long and shapely.
  • Avoid freshly-manured soil, which may produce hairy, rough roots and will cause forks and splits;
  • Sow seed thinly in rows, 1cm (1/2 in.) deep, 30-40cm (12-16 in.) between the rows as soon as the danger of hard frost has passed. Try to get about 4 seeds per 2cm (1 in.).
  • Thin to 16-20 carrots per 30 cm (1ft.) for fresh eating and 6-10 carrots per 30 cm (1ft.) for mature crops, depending on the root size you want, and keep weeded and watered. Dispose of thinned seedlings to avoid attracting Carrot Fly.
  • As they grow, push soil up over any exposed roots to prevent a green shoulder.
