Carrots

CARROTS  about 500 seeds per pack

Imperator If you have good loose soil, this is the carrot for you! Imperator was the ancestor of the modern hybrid carrots like you buy in the store. They are long and quite thin. Carrots of over 12” are common so you get a lot of eating per carrot. And they are sweet and crisp too. 68 days.

Kuroda

Kuroda  This Japanese carrot has become one of our standbys.  Not only is it very flavorful but it handles less than perfect soil and growing conditions just fine.  AND it is a large carrot, often weighing a pound or so, yet not getting tough or woody.  67 days or longer for very large, prizewinning carrots.

Scarlet Nantes

 

Scarlet Nantes  Carrots don’t get better than this old heirloom favorite.  Mature carrots are about seven inches long and finger shaped with a blunt tip.  They are very sweet and crisp as well as being uniform and easy to grow.  66 days
