CARROT – RAINBOW BLEND

Carota Sativa

A selection of 4 varieties including orange, purple (Cosmic purple), yellow (Solar yellow) and white (Luna white)Red, yellow, white and purple – are rainbow carrots the way of the future? Perhaps, but they could more accurately be called the carrots of the past because they have a long history. Purple & yellow carrots were grown as many as 1,000 years ago in Asia & Western Europe. Carrots taste pretty much the same, regardless of their color, & some taste even sweeter than a standard carrot.

Sow seed direct, keeping seeds moist, can cover with hessian or similar until germination, then uncover to let light in. Rotate crops to prevent disease build-up. Cleaned carrots store well in cool conditions. Sow spring, summer, and autumn, best not sown in heavy frost.
