Carrot 'Autumn King 2'


Winterwortel Flakkeese 2

Carrot (Winter) Flakkeese has big, orange-red carrots and forms a big crop. The carrots are nice and sweet and this variety has excellent storage properties. For preservation, sow in May and thin out timely at a few centimetres. High usage of fertilizers ruins the taste of the carrots, so please minimize. Late September or October harvest the carrots and remove the leafage. Keep the carrots cool and be aware of mice.

 Tip: using nets can solve problems with the carrot fly: cover the plants soon after the germs pop up. A simple, portable framework works best.
