We are thrilled to be able to offer you seeds from the original strain of this reliable true blue Aussie carrot.

We would like to pay tribute to the late Reg O'Connor from Natimuk (aka Reg the Veg) for donating these seeds to Diggers and allowing us to keep his superior selection in cultivation for our members. Reg and his wife Hazel were well known in Victoria's western district for their magnificent organic vegie garden. Hazel recommends Western Red as a sweet all-rounder which is excellent for juicing.
