Daucus carota Carrot 'Eskimo' is, as the name suggests, one of the most cold-tolerant varieties available, coping with winter weather down to -10C when grown on lighter soils. The rich orange, cylindrical roots can be lifted late in the season or even over wintered in free draining conditions. This top quality, RHS AGM variety resists splitting and retains its flavour throughout the autumn and winter - especially if left in the ground. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 15cm (6").

Useful/additional information Direct sow carrot seeds outdoors from March to July. Early varieties may also be sown from February to March in greenhouse borders or under cloches. Specific autumn sowing carrot varieties can be sown as late as October under cloches for an early crop in spring. Grow Carrots in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil. Carrots dislike freshly manured soils so seed beds are best prepared in autumn, well in advance of spring sowings. Sow carrot seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm in drills 3cm 1in) apart. Germination will take 1 to 2 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 1cm (4in) apart. Where space is limited, growing carrots in containers will also produce a worthwhile crop. Cover later carrot sowings with fleece or fine netting, and remove all thinnings from the site to minimise carrot fly infestation. Carrots can be harvested from July to December depending on their sowing date. Early varieties may be lifted when required from 9 weeks onwards, while maincrops can be harvested after 11 weeks from their sowing date. Pull a single carrot first to assess the size of the roots. If the soil is dry, lifting carrots can be made easier by watering beforehand. Roots can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to 4 months.
