HEIRLOOM 1928 One of the very first "All America" winners and it still qualifies as heirloom seed. According to the 1936 Henry A Dreer catalog: "This carrot represents a most desirable combination of choice eating qualities and splendid appearance. The roots grow 7 to 8 inches long. They have a broad shoulder and gradually taper to a fine tap root. Due to their form they are easy to harvest". Need we say more? Unfortunately we can't sell the packets for a dime as Dreer did. 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.
