Over the Rainbow Mix

Over the Rainbow Mix Main Season Carrot

(48-75 days) If there’s a better carrot mix than this one, it must be somewhere over the rainbow, way up high. We took a good formula called Rainbow Mix, especially strong in the lighter shades of yellow and orange, and boosted it with our own choice of dark orange, purple and red varieties. In doing so, we sacrificed some of the uniformity our European supplier maintains, so not all the roots are perfectly slender and tapered, nor will they all mature at the same time. But oh the colors!

Additional Information

Carrots

Daucus carota

⅛ oz packet sows 35 ft; 1 oz, 280 ft. 1 gram packet has more than 600 seeds and sows about 10 ft. Carrots average 18,000 seeds/oz with significant variations among varieties.

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

Diseases:

  • ALTS: Alternaria Leaf Spot
  • CLS: Cercospora Leaf Spot
  • P: Pythium

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.
