Long Red Roots -  Ideal for Slicing


SOW OUTDOORS - March-August thinly, direct into the required harvest position, 1in (2½cm) deep in rows 12in (30cm) apart.  Keep soil moist at all times to prevent roots from becoming dry and woody.

TIP - Use thinnings as baby leaf. Use fleece to protect crop from frost or cold wind. Twist off the tops to prevent "bleeding".
