Kuroda Carrot (110 Days)

A smooth, uniform conical carrot with a deep orange red color. Use as a main crop for enormous yields of 6” carrots that mature late in the growing season. Keeps well in cold storage. 

300 seeds

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 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 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 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 a 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 cause the roots to become hairy.

Why so few seeds?

Fine - however I have since found Kuroda carrot seeds elsewhere with more seeds in each package.....Kuroda 110 day carrot seed is not easy to find....but I have had my best carrot crops with it.

Kuroda Carrots - Yum

Kuroda carrot seeds arrived in good time, and germination in the garden was good. Thinned to one every two inches or so, they grew nicely. Just harvested first planting of this packet. They came out cleanly. The aroma is sweet, and the pickled carrots I make are sure to be good.

Definitely Growing Again!

I grew a few kinds of carrots this year and the Kuroda were the best! So large with a great crunchy texture and a lovely sweet carrot flavor. The soil wasn't the greatest and some of the other varieties split, but Kuroda stayed straight, thick and tender. The best tasting one I grew as of the end of Summer. Now we've had a few frosts (Nov. in NE Mass), so I'm excited to see how much better tasting the remaining carrots are...

Large selection, Reasonable price and fast shipping

Too early to start most of the seeds in my climate. Will give an updated review after harvest.
