Additional Information



CULTURE: Carrots require well-drained soils, with a pH range of 6.0-6.8. Deep, loose, and fertile sandy loams and peat soils with good moisture-holding capacity grow the straightest and smoothest roots.
PLANTING: Sow from early spring to midsummer, 3/4-1" apart (about 30 seeds/ft.), 1/4- 1/2" deep, in 2" wide band, or single rows 16-24" apart. For minimum soil compaction, use raised beds with 2 or 3 rows 16-24" apart, beds 5-6' on center. Sprinkle the soil surface to keep moist. Don't allow soil to crust before the emergence of seedlings which takes 1-3 weeks, depending on temperature and moisture. If soil moisture during germination is an issue, we recommend using pelleted seed. If necessary, thin young seedlings to 3/4-2" apart, depending on root size desired. Keep weed-free by tine weeding and shallow hoeing. To prevent greening, cover exposed crowns.
DISEASES: Blights can reduce yield and quality. Alternaria blight shows as brown-black lesions edged with yellow on leaf margins beginning on oldest leaves. Leaflets may shrivel and die. Cercospora blight first appears as small dark spots with yellow margins on the younger leaves and stems. To prevent blights, practice a 3-year crop rotation. Copper fungicides (see Index) can be employed as a preventive measure or control.
INSECT PESTS: Carrot rust flies and wireworms. Provide fertile growing conditions and avoid ground recently in sod if possible. Exclude adult insects with fabric row covers (see Index.)
HARVEST: Carrots may be dug any time after they reach the desired size. Generally the best harvest period lasts about 3 weeks (longer in cool, fall weather), after which time the roots may crack or the taste and appearance may decline. Make a few sowings at 3 week intervals for a continuous supply of tender carrots at their prime.
STORAGE: Plant carrots intended for winter storage about 100 days before expected fall frost. Carrots store best at 32°F (0°C) and 98% relative humidity.
AVG. SEEDING RATE: 1M/33', 5M/166', 25M/830', 720M/acre at 30 seeds/ft. in rows 24" apart.
CARROT TYPE: Each type is identified in catalog copy. Nantes are medium length and cylindrical. The Shipping/Imperator types have the extra length and durability required in conventional packaged carrots, and perform the best in deeply worked soil. Chantenays are top-shaped and suitable for shallow or heavy soil. They are suitable for tropical winter production (CA, TX, FL) or temperate summer production (where winters get below 45°-50°F (7°-13°C).
SIZED SEEDS: Standard except where noted.
SEED SPECS: SEEDS/LB.: 204,000-436,100 (avg. 294,900).
PACKET: 750 seeds, sows 25'.

AAS (All-America Selections) Winners AAS (All-America Selections) Winners
We carry dozens of All-America Selections winners, including seven Johnny's-bred varieties -- Jasper Cherry Tomato; Baby Bear Pumpkin; Bright Lights Swiss Chard; Diva Cucumber; Sunshine Kabocha Squash; Bonbon Buttercup Squash; and Carmen Pepper. Read about Johnny's Plant Breeding Program (article by Rob Johnston Jr., Johnny's founder and chairman).<br> <br> All-America Selections is an independent, nonprofit organization that trials new varieties alongside two or three similar varieties currently on the market, then introduces only the best garden performers as AAS Winners. Submitted vegetable and flower varieties are tested by a geographically divergent network of independent judges to determine whether their garden performance is truly superior, with winners chosen on the basis of scores received from judges at 34 sites in the U.S. and Canada. Johnny's is proud to be an official trial ground site for AAS. (To learn more, visit the All-America Selections website.)
