HEIRLOOM 1929 This is the short, fat carrot with a very attractive smooth orange skin. About 5 1/2 inches long, it rarely splits or forks, even in heavy soil. We like its hard, crunchy, dense texture and full-bodied flavor which is sweet and complex. An improvement on the original French import, this variety was introduced by Ferry Morse in 1930. 300 seeds

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.
