Carrot James Scarlet Intermediate Seeds

Daucus carota

  • Productive, large-rooted type
  • A very reliable maincrop with good colour and flavour.
  • Traditional favourite.
  • Easily sown direct in the garden.
  • Sow little and often for a continuous crop

Outdoors: sow thinly, March-July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1') between rows.

Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly from the row, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established.

Harvest: June-November. Roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
