Fast growing carrot that is excellent as a bunching carrot.


Daucus carota

Hybrid.  A quick growing carrot that colours up when the roots are still at an early stage. This means they can be harvested young as baby carrots when they are exceptionally tender and sweet, with virtually no core. When allowed to grow larger the roots produce a very high quality crop with an excellent flavour.

The green tops are large, strong (so can be hand pulled) and healthy, making this an excellent variety for bunching.

Speedo is a great variety for forcing overwintering inside a tunnel, greenhouse or cloche. Seeds sown in October and grown under cover will be ready for harvesting by the end of May. Alternatively, sowing can be made from November to February for summer harvests. It is also perfect for sowing outdoors in the ground or in containers
