Carrot 'Sugarsnax 54' F1 Hybrid - 1 packet (200 seeds)

Carrot ‘Sugarsnax 54’ F1 Hybrid – 1 packet (200 seeds) £2.89
This super sweet carrot is a taste sensation! Carrot ‘Sugarsnax 54’ has a superb flavour whether it is cooked or eaten raw. The long, tapered, 25cm (10”) roots contain high levels of beta carotene giving them a rich orange colour that will brighten any plate. The uniform roots are delicious eaten fresh but will also store well over winter. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 15cm (6”).

Either harvest when young and very sweet or leave in the ground longer.
Sowing Months:April, May, June – so plant as soon as possible.

Whilst seed packets give you the best months to plant seeds it’s always best bearing in mind the weather. Things are so mixed up this year that you can probably give anything a go as long as you don’t get too depressed if things don’t work 100%.
