For most of us a spring sowing will crop in the summer & a later sowing will give you autumn carrots. If you have a polytunnel (or lots of cloches) then these can be sown over the winter for an early crop.  They are short topped (hence cloches work) with smooth cylindrical roots: carrot coloured with a good flavour!
