Carrot Charisma blog

Celebrate the year of the carrot by growing and showing with us.

2019 is the year of the carrot and we would like to introduce carrot Charisma. Carrot Charisma is an exciting new chantenay main crop carrot that we are launching in January 2019. Charisma has a strong, broad shoulder resistant to greening, tapering to a blunt tip.

Highly resistant to bolting, Charisma is perfect for growing in all corners of the UK whatever the weather. With a good crunch and carrot flavour too we are sure this variety will become a gardener's favourite. 

You can celebrate the 'Year of the Carrot' with us, harvesting your very own delicious Charisma crop three months after sowing in March. 



We have teamed up with the National Vegetable Society for your chance to show off your crops at five shows around the country. We have our very own carrot Charisma class for you to exhibit your best three Charisma carrots on the plate. 

  • 1st place will receive £75

  • 3rd place will receive £10
