Altringham

No need to contact us about the spelling, please, it was always (if erroneously) named this way! This early 19th century variety is listed in Carters Catalogue for 1842 and described by D Guiheneuf in The Garden (1876) as “An English variety, readily distinguished from any other. It is said to have originated in Altrincham, a village in the vicinity of Chester.” It produces cylindrical roots, 20-50cm long, that taper towards their end. The orange flesh is crunchy and mild-flavoured.
