Little Finger carrots are a gourmet’s delight. The smooth 10cm long little roots are so tender and sweet tasting and are simply superb harvested young at just 8-9 weeks from sowing. Price for 150 seeds
SOW: at no more than 10mm deep from March to August, but early spring before mid-March or from July can avoid the worst of the carrot fly. For early sowings warm the soil with the cloches before sowing or wait for warmer weather. Dig the soil thoroughly first & sow sparingly to avoid the need for too much thinning.
GROW: start pulling after just 8-9 weeks. Keep moist and weed free – they don’t like the competition.
EAT: enjoy the flavour when pulled fresh. They can be stored in a poly bag in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Freeze: slice/dice larger carrots, freeze baby carrots whole, blanch for 3 minutes, plunge in cold water, drain and pack into potions.
