Dragon Carrot (85 Days)

Besides the appealing purple red color what really stood out to us was the crunch and flavor of this carrot,not over saturated with sweetness and has a wild, earthy side. Colorful inside and out, the interior is bright orange with a yellow core.  A Danvers type, growing to 7 “ and producing consistently shaped roots.

300 seeds


Daucus carota

Germination: 6-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-85ºF. The cooler the soil the longer it takes for germination, up to 3 weeks.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Sowing Outdoors: Start 3 weeks before the last frost into mid-summer. Sow lightly, thin to 1-3” apart. The larger the carrot variety the more space needed between them. The soil moisture should be maintained regularly until germination, letting the soil dry out during this period may result in lower germination.

How much does a packet plant: 10-12 foot row

Harvest: Start when carrots reach finger size for baby carrots. Carrots planted for summer harvest will hold in the ground for a few weeks but tend to split if they stay in the ground for too long. Late season carrots hold longer and become sweeter in the cooler weather.

Tips: Using a row cover helps to maintain moisture for germination. Carrots prefer loose soil, free of rubble. Use the shorter varieties for heavy soils. Keep well weeded and cover any exposed carrot with soil or mulch to prevent greening. An excess of nitrogen in the soil causes the roots to become hairy.

Good so far!

The germination was very good when we first planted them but tried some later but they didn't come up, so we stopped trying. Maybe later this year we'll try again. They're almost ready to harvest and the tops are nice and green and thick. So excited to try these!

Seed purchases 2021

Love the selection available! Sadly due to attempting to move I wasn’t able to plant this year, but I’m thrilled to do so next year!

Nice seeds

I've always had a good experience with Pine tree seeds. Everything grows well and there are not too many seeds in each packet that get old if I don't use each year.

Beautiful and tasty

Dragon carrots were my first attempt at a color other than orange and they did not disappoint. They grew exactly as described. I found them to hold their color well when roasted, but don’t scrub too hard because the thin purple skin will rub off. They were the talk of our last party when I served them raw on the veggie tray. Yummy and crunchy! Shown here with rainbow carrots.
