    Description:  Very hardy heirloom with 6" bright orange roots, a small core and sweet, tender flavor.  Excellent fresh or for storage.

    Planting Instructions:   68 days.  Plant in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked in well-prepared deep, loose soil, free of rocks.  Sow seeds in shallow furrows 1/8"-1/4" deep, covering with a thin layer of soil, vermiculite or fine, screened compost in rows 12-18" apart.  Keep soil moist to speed germination and prevent soil crusting.  Seedlings should emerge in 10-15 days.  Thin seedlings to 2-3" apart.  For a continued harvest, plant every 2-3 weeks.
