An F1 generation of Rodelika and Touchon carrot cross.
Touchon: A very popular French improved coreless variety producing 6 – 8″ long thick roots right down to the blunt tip. An excellent quality Nantes type carrot with a good sweet flavor, ideal for bunching and winter storage remaining sweet and tender for many months.
Rodelika: A great maincrop carrot, dark orange in colour with a wonderful sweet taste. Vigorous growth and strong foliage. This variety is often chosen in Europe to produce carrot juice due to its high brix value (number of grams of sucrose per 100grams of liquid).
I'm hoping the cross would have some characteristics of both and should benefit of Hybrid vigour.
