Beat Carrot Fly! To achieve a wonderful crop of carrots free of unsightly markings or larvae of carrot fly, it's worth taking simple precautions. Carrot 'Resistafly' F1 hybrid has a good resistance to carrotfly which can plague your well-deserved carrots when you least expect it.

Expect a heavy crop of long, well-coloured smooth roots from this outstanding variety. Every seed packet contains 800 seeds so you can see the savings you make growing from seed rather than buying carrots in plastic wrap at the supermarket.

Grow 'Resistafly' with its natural resistance to carrotfly, ideal for gardeners who prefer not to use chemicals.

We recommend you cover seeds with Marshalls Carrot and Cabbage Insect Net straight after sowing as an extra layer of protection and to keep other pesky bugs away.  Sow after 1st June to avoid first-generation flies.
