Carrot "Cidera".
A high yielding late variety of Nantes type which is intended primarily for juice making and for preserving. The root is 21 - 23 cm long, has a long oval shape and very good colour. The whole head of the root is in the ground and does not turn green. It is suitable for mechanical harvesting and growing in beds. Sow from the spring until the end of May. The growing time from sowing to harvest is 145 - 155 days.

* One of the reliable ways to “save” carrots, beets and other root vegetables is to store them in sphagnum moss. Root crops are placed in boxes in layers, layered with moss so that they do not touch each other.
Sphagnum moss has a whole range of unique properties. First of all, it is hygroscopic: it can retain moisture 100 times more than its dry mass, which ensures reliable moisture and air exchange. Thanks to its high iodine content, moss is an excellent bactericidal and disinfectant, and its ability to accumulate carbon dioxide gives a good preservative effect.
Green carpets of sphagnum moss occupy vast spaces; it grows in the shade, under the canopy of spruce trees, where it is humid. It has no roots, and each stem is crowned with a rosette framed by delicate leaves. Moss has a high degree of renewability. Every year after harvesting, a new layer grows - better and cleaner in quality than in the previous year. Moss is harvested in July - early August and quickly dried. Dried bunches become whitish-grey.
