Nice eaten fresh, great for winter soups and stews also.
Named for its “heart” shape, an orange carrot, great for winter soups and stews. Also nice eaten fresh. Reliable cropper. Does well in all soil types, even in soils where there is a hard pan or lack of top soil, as the carrots are shorter than most varieties.
Direct sow in early Spring and Late Summer in rows 20cm apart for an almost constant supply. Cover with shade cloth until seed germinates and gets established. Can be sown in trays and transplanted when true leaves emerge if there are large slug/snail populations. Fan out little plants in prepared trenches similar to planting leeks.
