Mokum Carrot (F1 Hybrid 54 Days)

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. Resistant to Alternaria leaf blight.

PLANTING

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: 9-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.

Best carrot crop ever

Planted these spring 2020. These were the biggest carrots I have ever grown - all my previous carrots seem to think they were baby carrots but these were beautiful and delicious. Will buy again if/when they show up.

Mokum Carrot

Shopping experience was great. My Mokum Carrots are planted and if they grow as beautifully as last year I may even be harvesting some really good tasting, huge carrots still next March.

Really good flavor, and fast, too!

Germination was good as always with Pinetree seeds, and these were the best carrots I've ever eaten!
