Mokum, Pelleted Early Carrot(48 days) F-1 hybrid. Arguably the tastiest carrot for fresh eating in late spring and summer. Repeat winner of our summer taste tests. Mokum’s earliness, slenderness and sweetness transcend its flaws. Blunt Amsterdam-type that sizes extremely quickly with short weak tops, brittle and not machinable. Should be harvested at 5–6" before the roots push out of the ground and develop green shoulders. Although not a versatile full-season carrot, Mokum merits succession planting so you can enjoy it young throughout the summer. Always the first to disappear from our spring patch. Not for storage. Susceptible to ALTS at our Colrain, Mass., plot in 2009 and 2012 but not in 2010. ④
We are pleased to offer pelleted carrot seed. Pellets can save time-consuming thinning for both home gardeners and commercial operations. They can be sown by hand or with precision seeders. Our carrot pellets are size 11.5. Pellets have one major drawback: the process shortens the viable life of the seed. Buy only as much pelleted seed as you need for this season. It will not hold over well. Our pellets use an inert clay coating that is in compliance with NOP standards. Keep pellets cool and dry prior to planting and maintain steady soil moisture during the germination period.
