F1 hybrid of the Nantes variety which is not susceptible to the carrot fly. The carrot fly prefers other carrot varieties; however, if eggs are laid on this variety the larvae wither away fairly quickly after emergence, and so the damage is limited. Produces shiny orange carrots approx. 18 cm in length. 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.
