Carrot Royal Chantenay 2
A well-known, rich, orange-red fleshed carrot, both crispp, sweet and high in vitamin C. Can be sown earlier than many other carrots, thus extending the season. Particularly good for successional sowings too.

- Thin seedlings to 10cm apart when they are large enough to handle, to reduce the risk of carrot root fly attack
