The result of over 15 years breeding Thompson & Morgan believe this is the closest to being a completely carrot fly resistant variety.

Its resistance lies in it having low levels of chlorogenic acid a chemical which the larvae of the carrot fly needs for survival. This means that it appears to be unattractive to the fly and even if your crop is attacked to some degree the larvae will soon die after doing relatively little damage.

A Nantes type with cylindrical roots and a good blunt end. Perhaps most importantly they are succulent and sweet. Carrots prefer a deep rich well drained soil which does not contain fresh manure or compost.

Sow spring to mid summer in drills 1cm deep spaced 30cm apart. As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle start thinning them out so that they are finally 10cm apart. The last thinnings should provide tender roots just large enough to be used. Harvest summer and autumn.

Quantity: 500 seeds
