Daucus carota sativus

Item #0119

75 days. Late planting your garden? Kuroda is quite heat resistant; don’t hesitate to plant in late spring when you might be doubtful about sowing carrots. Smooth, tapered roots, 8" long with 1" - 1½" shoulders. Simply unsurpassed for flavor — one of the sweetest carrots you will eat!

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" long); flavor is best after bright orange color develops. 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.
