Carrot Seeds - Cosmic Purple
This beautiful purple carrot grows 7-11” long and is ready for harvest in about 70 days. Very high in the anti-oxidant lycopene, which tends to be absorbed by the body at a much higher rate when the carrot is cooked.
Please note: Carrots like a well-drained, friable soil. Make sure you work the soil well down to 12” and break up any clumps larger than a dime. When carrot roots grow they tend to fork when encountering clumps of soil or pebbles. I have always found the best way to grow carrots is in a raised bed, with a sandy, pulverized soil mix. It’s not necessary, but the carrots will tend to be straighter and more regular in shape.
All seeds were harvested in 2014 for the 2015 growing season. Germination tested October 2014 90%.
