Carrot Seeds - Purple Haze

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2169
  • Pack Contents: 250 Seeds: Sufficient for 10ft / 3m Row

Carrot 'Purple Haze' is a main crop variety that is just as tasty as other Nantes types and is particularly sweet eaten raw in salads.

For early forcing, sow under frames or cloches in February as soil starts to warm. Make outdoor sowings March to April onwards.

Although 'Purple Haze' looks like a real novelty it is in fact the orange carrots that are the new-comers! The original wild carrots were purple, red, white or yellow and it was 17th century Dutch breeders who first produced the colour we know today.

Carrot Seeds - Purple Haze 1020-2169

Deep purple colour with an orange core, very tasty!

Thin Out: 2-3in (5-8cm) apart. Avoid crushing the leaves as the scent attracts carrot root fly.

Carrots do best on light, stone free, fertile soils. Stores well into winter.

Surround the carrot bed with a barrier of fleece at least 60cm high to keep low flying carrot root flies from your crop.
