Grow carrots in your garden, and enjoy delicious meals with your very own, home grown produce. Carrot Harlequin seeds produce an unusual mix of colours with purple, orange, yellow and white roots, and each colour tastes subtly different. These carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A and antioxidants and add a festive colour to salads, side dishes and a variety of baked dishes.
|Fruiting Period — Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter|
|Soil Requirements — Well drained soil|
Sow in well cultivated soil and sunny position. Separate the strips and roll out into prepared rows that are 5mm (1/4”) deep and 40cm (15”) apart. Cover with soil and keep moist. Thin seedlings to 30cm (1’) apart when large enough to handle. Pick individual leaves or the whole plant when young and tasty. Seedlings emerge 7-14 days. Seed tapes are easy to use and require less thinning. Time sowings for when temperatures are mild to avoid plants going to seed.
Keep soil moist.
