Carrot Tonda di Parigi HEIRLOOM Seeds

Daucus carota var. sativus

Item #0011

65 days. Tonda di Parigi is Italian for "Round of Paris" and is also called "Paris Market." It is deep orange, sweet and tender, and the round shape is a unique feature among carrots. Shallow roots mean you can grow it in a shallower bed or even in a container! Fun snack-size.

This packet sows up to 42 ft.

Seedling Image

Days to Emerge:
10-25 days

Seed Depth:
1/4"

Seed Spacing:
1"

Row Spacing:
6"

Thinning:
When 1" tall,
thin to 1
every 2"


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost, and when soil temperature is at least 45°F, ideally 60°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 60 days before first fall frost. In very warm climates, carrots are grown primarily in fall, winter, and spring.

When to start inside: Not recommended; root disturbance stunts growth.

Harvesting: For best flavor and texture, harvest carrots before they get larger than 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 might 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.
