Description: Originally a Dutch heirloom, but has been grown in New Zealand for a long time. This cultivar came from the Henry Harrington Collection, and Henry has been growing it since the war years. It is a large, white, long, tapered carrot with green shoulders that raise a little above the ground. At their best cooked, stunning for flavouring soups and stews.
Planting Instructions: Direct scatter sow over a 1x1m strip, when conditions are warm and moist. Lightly cover with soil, scatter Quash slug bait, then cover with an old sheet or 70% shade cloth while germinating. Remove cloth as soon as 70% of seeds show first two leaves, watch carefully for slugs and snail damage.
