Carrots & Parsnips

Carrots.

We are planning to grow 146 hectares of organic carrots for the 2018-19 season, mainly destined for the major multiples.

Supply starts in August and extends through to the following May with all later harvested (December onward) carrots being strawed up through the winter months.

Varieties include:

Norwich, Nairobi and Eskimo.

We are constantly trialling new varieties, alongside the above, to actively look at variety development. For example, this year we are monitoring plantings of Brilliance.

Parsnips.

20 hectares of parsnips have been planned for the 2018-2019 season. Our aim is to start harvesting during early September.

We are the UK’s leading supplier to the major multiples from September through to April – with crop strawed up through the winter months.

Varieties include:

Pearl, Javelin, and Palace.
