The carrot 'Rodelika' is a biennial root vegetable variety and was created in Germany in 1985 by selection from the old Rothild variety. The highly grown plants form strong dark green foliage and develop large, long, dull and smooth-shelled beets, with an intense orange-red color. The characteristic carrot flavor is characterized by a strong and very aromatic sweet. This variety has a high sugar content, low nitrate and high Brix levels, which makes this variety great for high-quality juices. Suitable for cultivation on heavy soils and very long storage bar.

Sow directly into the frost-free open air from March to June.

Due to the simple and uncomplicated germination, no-till seeds in rows are recommended. The sowing can be done very tightly, by later singling the small and densely growing young carrots can be harvested early to give others the space they need to grow.
Carrot prefers a sunny location with a nutrient-rich, stone-free and humus-rich clay soil. Prepare the soil with deposited animal manure. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
In principle, year-round sowing is possible for carrots in subtropical climates. At very cold temperatures, there is only a growth retardation, which only extends the culture time. Carrots do not tolerate fresh fertilizer, and the soil must be free of stones larger than 3 cm. Otherwise, it can lead to the fact that the roots will grow in different directions and significantly affect the quality of the crop. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds.

Care Plants
Since carrots germinate very slowly, other plants should be removed regularly. Occasional loosening of the soil leads to good growth results. Regular water giving causes faster growth. M It animal manure prepared beds and planting in mixed culture, replaces additional fertilization.

Germination ability of seeds: 5-6 years
