Availability: In stock (60)

Atomic Red Carrot Seeds 1388. Another Danvers type carrot with distinctly scarlet coral roots reminiscent of the 16th century before Dutch growers bred carrots to the orange colour we are all familiar with. Roots average 15-20 cm (6-8") in length and possess a very sweet taste and very crunchy texture!

How to Grow

850 seed/gram. Carrots will grow well in any open, well cultivated, deep garden soil. As the seed is quite small, mix it with some sand when sowing. Once soil temperature rises above 7.5 C (45 F), sow seed about 7-15 mm (1/4-1/2") deep in rows spaced 45-60 cm (18- 24") apart. Sow seed at 5 day intervals over several weeks. Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the 2 week germination period but avoid crusting over the soil as this will greatly reduce the number of seedlings that emerge. Thin the seedlings during the early stages of growth until they are 5 cm (2") apart. Keep the plants evenly watered, weed free and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Harvest any time after the carrot roots develop good colour.
