Description

LITTLE FINGERS (Daucus carota) is a great choice for the home gardener, especially if you have clay soil (perfect container carrot) or children (who love miniature veggies). This heirloom grows to 3" with smooth skin and very slight core. Sweet orange flesh and tender. 60 days. 50 seeds.

GROWING TIPS: Carrots have a very tiny seed and high germination. Thinning can disturb the root structure, so you will achieve the best results by adequately spacing seeds when initially planted and re-sow to fill any gaps (which will give you a nicely staggered crop). Some people mix the fine seeds with sand and then sow to achieve this spacing. Others mix the carrot seeds with radish seed. The radishes will mature quickly. Whatever your method, carrots require very fine soil down to a depth beyond their mature size. Many prepare carrot "boxes" using sand and garden soil that has been sifted to remove any stones or other particles that might cause the root to misform or split.

HARVESTING TIP: Carrots have fine root hairs growing alone the length of their tap root. If you harvest the carrot by pulling the greenery sometimes the foliage will separate and leave the carrot in the ground. To avoid this, first push the carrot into the soil a bit to break these fine root hairs, then pull to remove from the soil.

USE TIP: The beautiful feathery foliage from your mature carrots is a good addition to the compost pile -- but first use them in your vase. They make a delightful and elegant filler!
