Berlicummer II Carrot Seeds-approx. 2000 Seeds

This is a stunning and very interesting dark red carrot! The red colour comes from lycopene, the same substance found in tomatoes, well known as an anti-oxidant and reputed to have cancer-preventing properties. Lovely sweet, strong flavour, great eaten raw, but perhaps best served lightly cooked as the colour intensifies and the lycopene becomes more readily assimilated. Wonderful for adding colour to all your cooking and now firmly established as one of our favourites.

Sow seeds 5-10 mm deep when soil is at least 8 C. Sow seeds at 5 days intervals over several weeks for fresh eating. Thin to 5 cm apart.

Germination Instructions

Direct sow into well prepared, light well-drained soil that is stone free. Carrots do not like manured soils so beds are best prepared during the previous autumn. Rake in a general-purpose fertilizer 1-2 weeks before sowing. Sow very thinly 10mm deep in drills 30cm apart. Water until germination occurs. Germination takes 10-20 days. When large enough to handle thin to 10cm spacing.

Growing Instructions

Water only to keep the soil moist, excessive water encourages leaf, not root growth. Earth up around growing carrots to prevent green crowns. Carrot fly can be a problem, if so cover with fleece or fine netting.

Cultivation Instructions

Pull a single carrot first to check the size. If soil is dry water before lifting as this will make it easier. Use a fork to lift roots. Damaged roots should be used immediately or discarded. Sound roots can be stored. Cut leaves to 2cm and store in layers of sand, carrots should not touch each other during storage.
