Carrot Tonda di Parigi HEIRLOOM Seeds

Daucus carota sativus

Item #0011

65 days. Tonda di Parigi is a deep orange, round, tender carrot with sweet flavor. Sow close together so you can pull them out in bunches, and harvest at mature 1½" size. Unlike longer carrots, its shallow roots mean you can grow it in a bed that isn’t tilled very deep, or even in a container on your patio! Easy to grow. Fun snack-size.

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. Best flavor and texture at 1½" round, and bright orange color. 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.
