  • Carrot 'Resistafly' - A 'Nantes' type with good early vigour, a smooth skin and excellent core colour. The uniform 15cm (6") roots store particularly well.
  • Carrot 'Flyaway' - A naturally very sweet tasting variety with smooth skinned, blunt ended roots and a good orange skin and root colour.
  • Carrot 'Nantes 2' - This fast maturing selection is ideal for early sowings under glass in late winter for your first crop of the year.
