A prize-winner on the show bench as well as in the kitchen.
A main crop variety producing heavy, long tapering roots of superb flavour.
Roots store well over winter, ideal for winter stews, casseroles and soups. Sow April to June at 4 week intervals.
Sow thinly, 1cm deep in drills (holes or little channels) 30cm apart in soil, which has been raked to a fine tilth.
Water ground regularly, especially during dry periods.
When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 3-4cm apart for larger and heavier roots.
Remember to mark your rows with labels.
