Small 4", crisp, sweet carrots
for quick, early crops and for fall/winter treats.
Carrots that have matured in fall and gone through winter frost
are remarkably sweet and so appreciated in winter when most fresh garden crops are leafy greens.
BOTANICAL NAME: Daucus carota
Sow seed 3" apart or broadcast carefully in deep, well prepared bed for long, well-shaped roots. Avoid fresh manure or excess nitrogen which causes hairy, forked roots. Cover the seed lightly with soil. Do not allow the soil to dry out or crust (in soil that crust easily, try covering seed with sand, vermiculite, or potting mix). Germination can be slow; presoaking in warm water can help. Plant late summer for a fall crop that can be used after sweetening by frost.
