 CERTIFIED ORGANIC SEED, 1 packet (500 seeds)

Daucus carota Nash’s Best carrots were bred to be sweet while retaining a true carrot flavor. A multipurpose cross between a Nantes (preferred for fresh eating) and a Danvers (with more body and flavor for juicing and cooking). Boasts a strong leafy top to shade out weeds and resist breakage during harvest. Bred in the Pacific Northwest by farmer breeder, Nash Huber, they hold up to early freeze/thaw cycles to sweeten to peak flavor; hold well for winter storage.

Growing Notes

Direct seed as soon as soil can be worked in spring-- through mid-summer.  Optimal soil temp for germination is 55-75℉. Plant 1/4-1/2" deep; thin to 1-2" (depending on desired size) with >18" between rows.  For optimal growth, make sure soil is loose and free of stones and debris.  Weeding shortly after germination allows slow-growing carrot seedlings a better start.
