65-75 days. Imagine the pleasure of pulling up purple, red, white, yellow and orange carrots from the earth, so crisp and delicious from your own garden. Packed with vitamin A and other healthful nutrients, colored carrots have been around for more than 1000 years! For gourmet baby carrots, harvest when only 3" to 4" long.

This packet sows four 10-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
10-25 days

Seed Depth:
1/4”

Seed Spacing:
1"

Row Spacing:
6"

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" long). 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.
