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 sow into finely worked beds, evenly sprinkling over 1-2 square meters. Cover with old sheet or 70% shade cloth until carrots are up then remove. Weed once when carrots have true leaves. Watch for slugs.
