A vigorously growing variety with strong foliage. Large stump rooted, smooth skinned carrots with an intensive orange red colour. Average yield. Very good for storing and large scale production, also for heavy soils. Strong sweetly aromatic flavour. Has a very high Brix value and hence ideal for producing high quality juice.
