An excellent item for both table and exhibition use. The exceptionally uniform, round, smooth skinned roots have an attractive rich red internal coloration and stand for a long period without becoming 'woody'. Very tasty. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.
For early crops choose a bolt-resistant variety and sow March-early April. For use in summer and autumn make successional sowings of suitable varieties from late April to July. Store roots in dry sand, soil, or peat for winter use. (12-16 weeks maturity.)
