Description

The most handsome of all carrots, with the colours of a blood orange. They look and taste great and because they contain the super-healthy plant pigments — beta-carotene, anthocyanin and lutein, they’re also good for you!

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Water well to encourage germination. Once germinated, carrots should be watered only when necessary to keep the soil moist as excessive water may encourage leaf growth instead of roots. Grow under Enviromesh to protect against carrot root fly.
