Heirloom and Open-pollinated seeds

Tonda di Parigi Carrot


Daucus carota

Min Qty: 1.5 g

Description:  Popular heirloom, probably from Afghanistan, with 1-1/2" deep orange round roots and sweet, tender flavor. Great snack-sized carrot!  Good for container gardening.

Planting Instructions:   65 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 6" apart.  Keep soil moist to speed germination and prevent soil crusting.  Seedlings should emerge in 10-25 days.  Thin seedlings to 3" apart.  For a continued harvest, plant every 2-3 weeks.  For best flavor, do not allow to grow larger than 1-1/2".
