    Celeriac – Ibis (Organic)

    Fast growing smooth skinned celeriac with good storing qualities and disease tolerance. Ibis is a vigorous variety that produces smooth white skinned globes with a good dense interior. Its celery-like nutty mild taste enriches soups and stews and it tastes amazing when roasted or mashed. Our favourite recipes include celeriac schnitzel, battered and pan-fried and celeriac chips with curry powder.

    We’re selling particularly this variety because it has all the qualities you would want from a celeriac. Its smooth skin makes it easy to clean, it’s resistant to septoria, good for storing and is bolt-hardy which makes it suitable for early cultivation under protection.

    Shallot – Zebrune (Organic)

    A French heritage shallot of mild and sweet taste. With their elongated bulbs and their creamy brown colour tinged with a deep pink, this shallot looks as elegant as it tastes. It has an ivory white coloured flesh that is crisp and tightly layered.

    Zebrune is classed as a ‘banana shallot’ which is essentially a cross between an onion and a shallot. It inherited the best qualities from both sides. They are larger than the regular shallot and therefore easier to handle but so mild and fragrant in taste that is far superior to any onion.

    We loved every stage of growing this one, it’s a very pleasing crop and adds a French finesse and aroma to any meal.

    Turnip – Goldana (Organic)

    An improved version of the Golden Ball turnip, creamy-yellow flesh, suited for spring and autumn sowing. Turnips are very traditional vegetables which, unlike most of the vegetables we eat, are native to Europe. For some reason they are not as popular as they used to be.

    Goldana is a tasty maincrop variety with a uniform golden round shape, probably one of the mildest and sweetest varieties that you can find. It is quick to grow and doesn’t need much attention. “Get them in, get them out” is what Fred says. He likes them in soups or stews but they can also be roasted, mashed or grated into a slaw or salad.

    Carrot – Lila Lu (Organic) ***NEW FOR 2024***

    Lila Lu is a purple carrot on the outside with a vibrant orange interior, sweet and crunchy. This is a modern European breed specifically developed for organic growing conditions. It has a crunchy texture and pleasantly sweet taste, the purple pigmentation is attributed to a higher levels of the potent antioxidant ‘anthocyanin’ alongside the usual beta carotene that orange carrots offer. Carrots have been bred since the 10th century in Asia, whilst we have come to know carrots in their orange standard, their ancestors were yellow and purple, we appear to have come full circle with this ‘new’ variety.

    Daikon Radish – Minowase (Organic)

    A traditional variety of Daikon radish producing long bright white roots which are crunchy and delicious. This is a great variety of Daikon radish for sowing after July. Its roots can grow huge – up to 3 inches in diameter! It is not too hot and stays very sweet and crunchy. It’s best left in the ground until needed. We have some disagreement on the best way to eat Minowase; Fred likes to eat it raw and Ronja prefers to eat it cooked. Try both and see what works best for you!
