This variety, Amsterdam Forcing, can be used under cloches to produce some of the earliest carrots of the season. Equally it can be sown successionaly, until as late as July, to extend the fresh harvest. Pull early for baby carrots or leave a little longer to enjoy a larger crop. This variety also freezes well. Price for 150 seeds
SOW & GROW: early spring to July at no more than 10mm deep: early sowings before mid-March or late June/July can avoid the worst of the carrot fly. Sow sparingly to avoid the need for too much thinning. Early sowings should be made under cloches: dig the soil thoroughly and then warm using cloches for at least a week before sowing. Keep moist and weed free as they don’t like competition.
EAT: enjoy the flavour when pulled fresh from the garden. Carrots can be stored in a poly bag in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. To Freeze - slice or dice larger carrots, freeze baby carrots whole, blanch for 3 minutes, plunge in cold water, drain and pack into convenient sized potions.
