McKenzie Seed – Carrot Tenderlong Imperator


Tenderlong Imperator is an extremely long carrot variety. On average roots grow to 25 cm (10″)! Orange-red in color with dark green tops, they are rich in vitamin A and when eaten raw, dietary fiber.



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: 65 to 80 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: Onion, leek and herbs such as rosemary and sage act as a repellent to the carrot fly.
