Additional Information

Carrots

  • ⅛ oz packet sows 35 ft; 1 oz, 280 ft. 1 gram packet has more than 400 seeds and sows about 10 ft.
  • Carrots average 18,000 seeds/oz with significant variations among varieties.
  • Days to maturity are from seedling emergence after direct sowing.

Culture: Very hardy. Early carrots can be sown by late April. For fall crop or winter storage, seed in early summer. Minimal germination temperature 40°, optimal range 60–85°. Can take up to 3 weeks to germinate; keep rows from drying out for faster emergence. Thinning is critical: At 3" high thin to ½" apart, at 6" thin again to 1-2" apart.

Diseases:

  • ALTS: Alternaria Leaf Spot
  • PM: Powdery Mildew
  • BR: Black Rot
  • TLS: Target Leaf Spot
  • LR: Licorice Rot

ALTS shows up first on the oldest foliage as brown-black spots edged with yellow. Foliage blackens and shrivels as it develops and spreads. Maintaining a good crop rotation is the best preventive.
