RHS AGM awarded Carrot Malbec F1 (RRP £3.05 for 350 seeds) leads the new varieties in the Johnsons 2019 vegetable range. It has showy red roots and fantastic flavour. It is the stand out carrot to grow. Helen Clayton, Johnsons Brand Manager comments “This was a real flavour hit on our trials last year. A really delicious variety, especially when roasted.” This new introduction also supports Fleuroselect’s other campaign – Year of the Carrot.
