Carrot Marion F1
A high-quality Nantes variety that is suited for all year round growing as it stays in good condition in the ground for several months and is hardy enough to over-winter in all but the coldest regions. The cylindrical roots have a blunt tip 15-17cm long and are a rich orange with no green shoulders, and an outstanding flavour.
Sow outdoors March to June, in a prepared seed bed. Sow thinly in rows 30cm apart. Cover lightly with 1.5cm of fine soil. Firm gently and keep moist. Seedlings appear in 14-21 days. For a continuous supply sow every 2-3 weeks. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, start thinning them out so that they are finally 10cm (4in) apart. Keep well watered to prevent the roots from splitting. Harvest: August to March.
