Market garden selection. Amsterdamse bak is the earliest type of carrot, a so-called 'primeur carrot'. Produces a fine, bright orange carrot with a delicious sweet flavour. Length approx. 15 cm. Sow thinly in rows. After emergence do not thin out. Ensure the soil is worked well deeply, so that the carrot can develop without interruption. Fertilize normally, do not use fresh farmyard manure. If necessary cover to protect against damage from carrot fly. Planting onions or leeks between the rows helps.
