Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 10 to 12 weeks before your average first fall frost date. In very warm climates, carrots are grown primarily in fall, winter, and spring.

Harvesting: For best flavor and texture, harvest carrots any time before, and until they reach their optimal size. Peak harvest period lasts about 3 weeks, longer in the fall. Late summer-sown carrots are sweetened after having been kissed by light frost; however, harvest before soil freezes, which may destroy the crop. In USDA zone 5 or warmer, carrots can be left in the ground for storage provided they are heavily mulched; harvest as needed on days the ground is not frozen.

such fun in stir fries and casseroles

I tried a few rows of this variety pack this year and will sow more next year! The color was beautiful in rice, salads, and stir fry dishes and of course, the taste was excellent as well. The white carrots got much larger than the other colors, but they held well in the ground when I was waiting to use them.

These grew really well and were a huge hit with everyone. They taste great in addition to being fun. The packet I got had more white and orange than yellow, red and purple, but with some strategic harvesting, I was able to give away some very colorful bags of carrots as well as make some really pretty salads.

Colorful surprises!

It was so exciting to dig these up to see what colors they were. Beautiful purples, bright orange, pretty white, and dark reds. They were tasty. They took a lot longer than expected to be ready to eat (probably user error), but it was worth the wait!!!!

they did not get big but were lovely. I do think that I planted them too close together. Need to thin them better.. h

I started a fall garden for the first time and used mostly all Botanical Interests seeds. I had excellent germination on everything I planted. These carnival carrots are so much fun! Pulling up the carrots and getting a color surprise with each one was the most fun!! I will grow these every year. Of note, my soil was not ideal given it was the first year gardening and filling our newly built raised beds. We mixed cheap store-bought soil and compost with our native heavy clay soil. I was afraid that the clay soil would not be lofty enough for the carrots to form, but this variety grew the largest of all of the carrots we grew and were beautifully formed.
