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. From Koanga Institute, 2018; Diana Kirpensteijn, 2016; Kim Rappard, 2016; Brian Adair, Rangiora, 2014; Cheryl Carter, 2014.
