A favorite main crop carrot with roots 6 to 7 inches long and 1 ¾ inches thick. Fine textured, tender bright orange flesh is rich in flavor and very sweet either raw, cooked or frozen. A heavy yielder and good keeper.

SOWING…Plant seed outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant in rows 12 to 15 inches apart, spacing seed ½ inch apart in the row. Cover seed with ¼ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Keep soil moist until seeds start to grow.

THINNING…When plants are 2 to 3 inches tall, thin to 2 to 3 inches apart in the row.

GERMINATION…Carrot is very slow to germinate, requiring up to 3 to 4 weeks depending on soil and weather conditions.

REMARKS…Some gardeners like to soak the seed a few hours before planting to aid in germination. Make successive sowings up to mid-July for full sized roots for winter storage. Plant Radish seeds in the row with Carrots. The Radishes will sprout quickly to mark the row, they will mature and can be harvested before the Carrots get too large.
