Orange Nantes carrots are early maturing with great flavor - that's one of our favorites! ORGANIC SEED
Pelleted Seed is excellent for carrots as they have a better germination rate!
PLANTING: Sow from early spring to midsummer, ¾" apart , ¼– ½" deep, in 2" wide band (about 16 pellets/ft.), or single rows 16–24" apart. For minimum soil compaction, use raised beds with 2 or 3 rows 16–24" apart, beds 5–6' on center. Sprinkle the soil surface to keep moist. Don't allow soil to crust before the emergence of seedlings which takes 1–3 weeks, depending on temperature and moisture. If necessary, thin young seedlings to ¾–2" apart, depending on type or root size desired. Keep weed-free by tine weeding and shallow hoeing. To prevent greening, cover exposed crowns.
