Plant Type: Vegetable
Flavor: Sweet and crunchy
Preparation Ideas: Clean, peel and slice carrots. Bring 3 cm (1″) of salted water to boil in a saucepan. Add the carrot slices. Return to boil, then reduce the heat and cover the pan. Cook until just tender, but not soft. This will take about 10-15 minutes. Drain and eat hot. For extra flavor add salt, pepper and butter.
Days to Germination: 10 to 14 days
Days to Maturity: 60 to 70 days
Planting Depth: 6 mm (1/4″)
Instructions: Sow in early spring in well cultivated soil. Uniform moisture is critical. Seedlings should be thinned to approximately 5 cm (2”) apart for optimal root formation. Sowings of carrot seed can be repeated every 2 weeks until mid-summer.
Suggestions: For best flavor, harvest when roots are not more than 5 cm (2″) in diameter. Companion plants are beans, peas, tomatoes, onions and leeks.
