Carrot 'Ideal Red' is an early summer fast maturing Early-Nantes type, ideal to pull as finger carrots. Roots are a uniform, rich-orange colour and wonderfully tender and delicious.
Fast maturing. Ideal to pull as finger carrots.
Sow Outdoors: February-August. Sow little and often for continuous crops thinly ½in (1cm) deep in shallow pre-watered drills, in soil that hasn''t been manured in the last 12 months. Keep soil moist at all times. (Protect early sowings with cloche or fleece).
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.
Surround the carrot bed with a barrier of fleece at least 60cm high to keep low flying carrot root fly from your crop.
Good for freezing
