(Daucus carota) A reliable and consistent producer of tapered carrots reaching up to 7” in length and 2” at the shoulders. Vibrant purple skins enclose crisp orange centers with a lighter yellow core. Mildly sweet, earthy flavor. A beautiful addition to salads and snack trays. 85 days to harvest. 150 seeds per packet.
CULTURE: Sow seeds outdoors about 3-5 weeks before last frost. Keep soil moist until germination has occurred. Hint: To keep soil cool and moist during germination, carrot seed can be inter-planted with radishes, which are harvested once the carrot seedlings are established. Successive plantings can be made every 2-3 weeks throughout spring and fall.
