IMPERATOR CARROT (heirloom)

Germ 6-14 days
Heirloom 1928
According to the 1936 Henry A. Dreer catalog; “This carrot represents a most desirable combination of choice eating qualities and splendid appearance. The roots grow 7-8” long. They have a broad shoulder and gradually taper to a fine tap root. Due to their form they are easy to harvest.” 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.

    Outstanding service and seeds

    We ordered multiple seed types from Pinetree and the experience was great. We live in Western Washington and so we have only planted the tomato, pepper and sunflower seeds at this point in late April. All the seeds germinated at a high rate inside the house and the seedlings have been moved out to our greenhouse. All plants look healthy. We are looking forward to planting other seeds directly in the garden and we are now loyal customers. Thanks.
