Relatively early with fine color, a small core, and is very juicy and sweet. An Amsterdam type, roots are about 6” long. Makes a good “baby” carrot due to its high sugar content and rapid coloring, but is fine for harvesting throughout the season as well. One of the best flavored varieties with a rich sweetness that is especially good raw and for juicing. 200 seeds

 

PLANTING:

Outdoors- Early spring, a few weeks before last frost until mid summer. Sow lightly, 1/4” deep, with soil temperature 50-80 degrees. The cooler the soil the longer it takes for germination, up to 3 weeks. The soil moisture should be maintained regularly until germination. Thin to 1-3” apart.

Harvest– Start when carrots reach finger size for baby carrots or when they turn to a bright orange. Late season carrots hold longer and become sweeter in the cooler weather.

Tips- Use a row cover helps to maintain moisture for germination. Carrots prefer a loose soil, free of rubble. If your soil is heavy with clay, use the shorter varieties. Keep well weeded and cover any exposed carrot with soil to prevent greening.
