Daucus carota

These petite, ball-shaped beauties are extra-tasty morsels to enjoy in just a few bites with excellent sweet flavor and crunchy texture. Delicious little Round Romeos have smooth-skinned orange flesh that needs no peeling; it's fun to eat them right in the garden. These baby gourmet carrots are perfect for containers because they don't need deeply prepared soil like other carrot root crops. Romeo carrots are easy to grow and perform well for both spring and fall planting.

Start Seeds Outdoors In spring once danger of hard frost is past, sow seeds in full sun in finely-worked, fertile soil. Sow 1/4 in. deep and 1/2 in. apart in rows 6 in. apart, or broadcast thinly in beds and cover lightly. Keep seed bed evenly moist as carrots can be slow to germinate, emerging over 10 to 20 days. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away as seedlings catch up quickly. Thin young carrots several times so seedlings are about 3 in. apart and have room they need to size up.

Growing Notes: Carrots like well worked soil and need consistent moisture to grow well. If your soil dries out fast, cover seedbed with floating row covers to help retain moisture during the germination period and water right through it. Keep carrots well-watered and thinned. For a late season crop, sow again 3 months before first expected frost.

Harvest and Use: Let Romeos color up to orange before harvesting at about one to one-half inches in diameter for best flavor. Steam them whole, then toss with butter and fresh chopped parsley or chives. Or simply steam, toss with a little butter, salt lightly and add a touch of brown sugar or maple syrup.
