How to Sow

  • Carrots can be sown early, after danger of heavy frost is over. Sow every two weeks thereafter for continuous harvest, or simply sow a second crop in midsummer for fall harvest. In frost free areas, sow in fall.
  • Carrots do not like to be transplanted and are best sown directly into the garden bed. Sow carrot seeds in deep, well-worked soil in full sun. Straight roots require soil that is light, loosened deeply, and free of stones, so prepare a carrot planting thoroughly. Consider using a soil amendment such as compost if your soil is heavy. If you choose long carrot varieties, your soil will need to be worked more deeply.
  • Sow thinly in rows 12 inches apart and cover with ½ inch of fine soil. Firm lightly and keep evenly moist.
  • Since seedlings have fine leaves it may be beneficial to plant radish along with your carrot seed. The radishes will be harvested well before carrots form and act as a guide to the carrot row.
  • Seedlings emerge in 14-21 days.
  • Thin carrot plants to stand 1 inch apart when seedlings are 3 inches high.

How to Grow

  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating.
  • Deep, consistent watering and soil well-enriched with compost help carrots form high quality roots by encouraging lush leafy tops that shade the roots, helping to prevent "green shoulders."
  • Keep plants well watered during dry periods to promote uninterrupted growth. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It’s best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.

Harvest and Preserving Tips

  • To make harvesting easier, soak your carrot bed with water before pulling. Twist the tops off while pulling the roots up.
  • You can leave carrots in the ground after the first frost. In cold climates, pull carrots up before the ground freezes. In warm climates, you can harvest carrots all winter.
  • Cut the greens off the top after harvest to about ¼ - ½ inches above the shoulder. This will help the carrot to keep longer as the greens can take moisture from the root.
  • Carrots store best at 32-38 degrees F at 98% humidity.
  • You can store them in the refrigerator in plastic bags, or they may be blanched and frozen for later use.
  • Carrots may be canned or pickled as well.

Carrot, Kaleidoscope Blend Organic is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Grow Well At All I bought these hoping to get multicolored carrots for the kids but they didn't grow. I only got a few carrots out of it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from small yield-all orange I have tried these for 2 years. Both years small yield and every carrot orange. After asking one of the master gardeners at our community gardens he suggested going ahead and buying separate packets and trying that way. So not giving up on red, yellow and purple carrots just can not recommend this mix. One good point is the seed overwinter remarkable well and produce tender carrots early the next spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Excellent - Planting More This Year! I planted carrots for the first time last year - the kaleidoscope blend! Absolutely loved them - the flavor is amazing! Due to limited garden bed space I put them in a planter, and they grew just fine (came out a little small, but that is because I over-crowded them). This year, I'm planning them again and have arranged for additional garden space. Can't wait to harvest them in the late summer/early fall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Flavor These carrots were delicious, prolific and so, so sweet. I dug the last of them before the snow flew and we are still enjoying them out of the crisper. They hold up well in crock pot dishes and have been delicious in soups. They are beautiful. A salad with these is stunning. Everyone remarks about how pretty and sweet they are. Just lovely; I will plant these every year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of space in my garden I was extremely disappointed with these seeds. Not only did half the carrots try to flower the first year planted (even though carrots are supposed to be biennial) but most of them didn't form nice juicy carrots, but more like a skinny, tap root that was so woody I couldn't even cut it with a knife. Will never purchase these again.
