Good preparation is the basis for success. For example, the soil type, how the soil is worked, the variety and the time of sowing are key factors in ensuring an optimal result. Many years of experience and expert growing advice have resulted in a product that is economical and environmentally sound to grow and that meets all our customers’ and consumers’ demands.
All our carrots are delivered polished. Polishing helps give FreshCarrot carrots a competitive edge in the market.

Coloured carrots

In addition to standard orange carrots, we also supply coloured carrots. They are grown in the same environmentally friendly Planetproof way. The available colour options are: purple and purple + rainbow. The purple carrot is entirely purple, on the outside as well as the inside. The Rainbow mix consists of the colours orange, white, yellow and salmon pink. Of course coloured carrots are also delivered polished. In addition to standard packaging, coloured carrots can also be supplied in cardboard boxes of 5 kg. 

Varieties

FreshCarrot supplies two carrot varieties: The Napoli is grown as an early carrot, and the Maestro F1 is for later cultivation and growing under cover.

NAPOLI (BEJO SEEDS)
Napoli is an excellent B and C carrot which is ideal as an early crop for supplying the fresh market. 0.9 million to 1.4 million seeds can be sown per hectare from January to March.

MAESTRO F1 (NICKERSON-ZWAAN)
The Maestro is an extremely smooth carrot with an outstanding flavour. Maestro is also particularly resistant to Alternaria blight, mildew and cavity spot. So it is ideal for growing in fields and under cover. 0.9 to 1.4 million seeds can be sown per hectare from January to March.

NEW VARIETIES
We trial new varieties on a small scale every growing season, often at the request of breeding companies. This helps us establish whether a new variety might be suitable for the special VersePeen market. Our assessment criteria include flavour, presentation after washing and shelf-life. Any variety that scores more highly on these points than the standard at the time is tried out on a larger scale in the next growing season. Napoli and Maestro F1 are two examples of carrots that were included in the growing schedules of the FreshCarrot growers.
