 Customer Rating

  • The most cold-tolerant variety - down to -10�C

As the name suggests, Carrot 'Eskimo' is one of the most cold tolerant varieties available, coping with winter weather down to -10C when grown on lighter soils. The rich orange, cylindrical roots can be lifted late in the season or even over wintered in free draining conditions. This top quality, RHS AGM variety resists splitting and retains its flavour throughout the autumn and winter - especially if left in the ground. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 15cm (6").


Companion planting: Try growing carrots with spring onions, leeks and mint, whose aromatic leaves deter carrot root fly.
