Dragon Carrot (85 days)

2

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 danver type, growing to 7 “ and producing consistent shaped roots. 300 seeds

 

PLANTING:

Germination- 6-14 days

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.

Review of carrots in April?

Maybe check you review timing…it’s still April and we have snow on the ground.

Good red carrot

This is the second red carrot I've purchased from Pinetree, and it did relatively ok in my sandy soil, zone 3/4. We had a cool summer, and while a lot of this variety germinated, most were very small. I probably could have done a better job thinning them, too. I previously ordered the Atomic Red variety and really liked those, but they are now unavailable.
