An old time favourite. A popular improved coreless variety with good quality and flavour. Roots are 7-8" long and carry their size right down to the blunt tip. Good for bunching and winter storage, remaining sweet and tender for many months. Sow early for summer use and follow with a second planting for winter storage or freezing. 65-70 days.
Approximately 600 seeds (~1g) per packet
Carrots need a well-draining, deep, loose, and fertile soil with a pH range of 6.0-6.8. to grow the smoothest straightest roots. Sow from early spring to midsummer, 3/4–1" apart, 1/4– 1/2" deep, in a 2"-wide band (about 30 seeds/ft.), or single rows 16–24" apart. Keep the top of the soil moist, don’t allow it to crust before seeds germinate which can take 7-21 days depending on temperature and moisture. As carrots grow, thin to 3/4–2" apart, depending on size desired. Keep weed-free and cover exposed crowns to prevent greening. Reemay or floating row cover can keep out carrot rust fly a common pest in many areas.
