ADELAIDE CARROT (F1 hybrid 65 days)

1

Germ 6-14 days 
Dutch hybrid is used exclusively for producing those attractive baby carrots that command such a premium price at the market. An early, cylindrical, bright orange, coreless carrot that grows to about 3 1/2” for harvest, Adelaide retains its remarkably sweet flavor for quite a while. Use raw, in salads, for pickling, & stir fries. 300 seeds

PLANTING:

Outdoors- Early spring, a few weeks before last frost until mid summer. 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.
