Daucus carota 'Resistafly'
Carrot - F1 Hybrid 'Resistafly'
Daucus carota Carrot 'Resistafly' is an F1 Hybrid with the same tolerance to Daucus carota Carrot root fly as Daucus carota Carrot 'Flyaway', but producing larger, blunt-ended, cylindrical roots with a deliciously sweet flavour. A 'nantes' type with good early vigour, a smooth skin and excellent core colour. The uniform 15cm (6in) roots store particularly well. Height: 30cm (12in). Spread: 15cm (6in).
