BOTANICAL NAME: Pastinaca sativa


Soak seeds overnight. Plant 4" apart in deeply dug, rock free soil that is well composted. Do not use fresh manure or nitrogen as rich soil causes hairy, forked roots. Water and weed seedlings until established, then requires little care. The flavor is improved by a light frost, and best if left in soil to overwinter, and harvested as needed. Plant in Spring for Fall harvest, in mild-Winter areas plant in Fall for Spring crop. Store in the ground or root cellar for winter.
