Broad shouldered, stump ended roots, smooth skin, excellent colour. Although not resistant to carrot fly, this variety does have a very good tolerance as it is not attractive to the egg laying flies.
Carrot Flyaway was bred to show resistance to carrot fly but unfortunately is not immune to attack . Being such a dry year , carrot fly appear to be about sooner.
If only carrot flyaway is grown and if there is carrot fly in the area they will still attack the variety . To overcome this another variety like Early Nantes should be grown alongside , this acts as a sacrificial crop and the Carrot fly will prefer to attack this variety and leave the row of Carrot Flyaway alone. Alternatively carrots should be grown under enviromesh to stop them getting to the crop.
