Daucus carota

Carrot
Species Information: 
Biennial. Varieties cross by insect, recommended isolation 1.6km. Wild ancestral species (one of the plants called ‘Queen Anne’s Lace’) and cultivars seeding back into the wild are common field edge/roadside ‘weeds’ in NZ and will cross.
#168 Akaroa Long Red
A favourite for winter harvest. The roots grow very large (400gms or more), are unaffected by frost and don’t split in the wet. They are still good eating in September. Their core is large compared to other varieties and they produce a lot of top growth first. The root develops slowly, so they are not recommended for spring planting. Sow November to January.

#52 St Valery
Ex HDRA. A pre 1886 red carrot from France with tender, sweet flesh. A large handsome variety which may be regarded as the connecting link between the half long and long varieties of red carrot. The root is very straight and smooth, a bright red colour. They grow very broad at the neck (frequently 50-75mm in diameter) and at 250-300mm long the root is only about four times the diameter. Does best in light, rich, well dug soil where it can grow to its full depth of 300mm.
