Carrot Carnival Blend Organic Seeds

Carrot Carnival Blend Organic Seeds

Daucus carota sativus

Item #3115

65-75 days. Colored carrots are unique but not new. Grown and eaten in Asia and Europe 1,000 years ago, they are available once again. Just like the popular orange carrots, red, purple, white and yellow carrots contain plenty of vitamin A and other healthful nutrients. Carnival Blend carrots can also be harvested when only 3" to 4" long for gourmet baby carrots.

This packet sows four 10-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
10-25 days

Seed Depth:
1/4"

Seed Spacing:
1"

Row Spacing:
6"

Thinning:
When 1" tall,
thin to 1
every 3"


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Successive sowings every 3 weeks until 60 days before first fall frost. In climates with lows above 25°F, grow all winter.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Do not allow carrots to get larger than normal size (8" - 10"). Peak harvest period lasts for 3 weeks. Late summer planted carrots are very sweet if harvested after first couple of light fall frosts, but before heavy frost. In climates where temperatures don’t fall below 20°F, with protection, carrots can be left in ground for storage, and harvested as needed.
