This vigorous, uniform hybrid grows well even on poorer soils. The attractive globe-shaped, purple-shouldered roots boast tasty, fine-textured, cream-coloured flesh.
Seed can be either ‘Open Pollinated’ or a ‘F1 Hybrid’. Open pollinated seed is naturally pollinated and genetically diverse. F1 hybrids are deliberately created by crossing two different parent varieties to produce a seed which has particular characteristics.
Garden Organic’s Principles of Organic Gardening allow the use of F1 hybrids only when there are no other alternatives available to the grower. On these rare occasions, an organic F1 hybrid is preferred but, if unavailable, a non-organic F1 hybrid can be used.
If you’re growing to save seed, Garden Organic recommends choosing an Open Pollinated variety. F1 Hybrids are less likely to produce seed ‘true to type’ or hold the same characteristics as the plant you saved it from.
Sow 1.8cm (¾") deep in grooves 38cm (15") apart, thinning plants to 20cm (8"). Alternatively sow in small blocks spacing a few seed 20x20cm (8x8") apart May-June. Thin to one seedling per station and leave for autumn/winter use. Harvest September-February. Row length per pack: 30m (100').
