Carrot, Black Spanish (Daucus carota) seeds, organic


Family:  Carrot (Apiaceae)

Biennial.  65 to 75 days to maturity

Heirloom violet-colored carrot, stronger tasting than orange carrots, nutrient-dense. Source of anthocyanins.  Crunchy and spicy when fresh, more interesting than a standard carrot in cookery.  Sow in spring, or for the fall garden sow July-Aug, 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep.  Germ in 10 to 21 days.  Prepare a fine seedbed and make furrows with your fingers and sow lightly.  Barely cover seed and tamp in, then keep evenly moist until germination.  Thinning is important to keep plants from bolting to flower. Thin to 4 inches apart and cultivate often until they size up. Carrots average 6 inches long.
