Daucus carota L

Well-known heirloom carrot variety that was mentioned already at the end of the 19th century. The root is thick and conical with a nice carrot taste. Eaten fresh or blanched and then frozen.

Covering with fiber cloth provides faster germination and prevents attacks from harmful insects. Leave the fiber cloth on until harvesting.
