Carrot 'Camberley' / Maincrop Berlicum Carrot / Seeds

A high quality ‘Berlicum’ type carrot, typically grown as a reliable main crop.  The carrots have long cylindrical roots, typically 17-23cm in length, with good colour. These are very versatile carrots, good for eating fresh, for processing/cooking and for winter storage.  


Carrots like a sunny spot and light drained, well cultivated soil.  Avoid stony and recently manured positions.  Each plant grows to about 15-20cm in height.

 

Pack of approx 800 seeds.  Sow directly in the ground in spring and summer.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the seed packet.
