Carrots Harlequin Mix

Our choice mix of great tasting carrots in a kaleidoscope of fun colors includes orange, yellow, white and purple roots. Each color tastes subtly different and has different antioxidants, so you’re getting a lot of healthy eating from one packet. In addition to their eye candy colors, these are excellent all-purpose Dutch Nantes carrots with sweet, brittle, aromatic flesh that is first-rate for eating and juicing. They mature early, with strong tops that make them easy to harvest.

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 8 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 2 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. Plant again 3 months before first expected fall frost for a late crop.

Harvest and Use: For best sweet flavor, let pretty, different colored carrots size up and fully mature before harvesting. Enjoy these extra healthy carrots raw as snacks or grated into salads for great eye appeal. Sauté or steam just until tender crisp and serve with a little sweet butter and your favorite fresh chopped herb. Carrots go well with dill, tarragon, chives, cilantro or mint.
