Carrot Lunar White

Carrot Lunar White. This wonderful new white carrot variety is nearly coreless, with a nicely mild flavour. It is a large carrot at up to 12 inches when mature, yet is also very suitable for baby carrot use. Although the roots underground are bright creamy white, the hips can show a bit of green which can be avoided by hilling up the soil around the plants as they grow. (2500 Seeds per pack)

Cultivation Advice Carrot Lunar White

  • 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.
