Parisian Carrot (Heirloom, 55 days)

Recommended Substitute

Atlas Carrot



Also known as Paris Market, or Tonda di Parigi – literally “round of Paris”. Carrots have a bright orange color and a distinctive, nearly round shape, roughly the size of a ping-pong ball. Flavor is mild and pleasant. Will do very well in rocky soils where others are misshapen. 

300 seeds


Germination: 6-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-85 degrees F. The cooler the soil the longer it takes for germination, up to 3 weeks.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Outside Sowing: Starting 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 or when their color deepens. 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 to roots to become hairy.

Parisian Carrot

I have horrendous soil. Have pretty much given up on root crops. Made some raised off the ground garden beds and tried the Parisian carrots. They did great. Mine grew to about the size of radishes, which worked just fine for quick munchers or throwing in the crock pot. Good flavor, not given to woodiness in the center.
