Carrot – Autumn King
One of the most reliable varieties. Well suited to heavy soils, but maybe not the best for flavour. Harvest in October for storing through the winter.
Sow directly outside in a well prepared seed bed in shallow drills (1.5cm deep). The best sowing date is in late May/early June to avoid the carrot root fly.
Between rows: 25cm
Thin to 3cm between plants.
Approx. seed count: 500
