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, Sweet Treat Hybrid is rated 4.583333333333333 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for raised beds We've grown this carrot in our raised gardens for several years now. It's always done well and is a very reliable producer. We love them and always grow lots of them because our friends and family love them too. Often times they come back looking for more of them. They don't grow real long, but they can get quite fat and they still taste great. Never woody or bitter. I put probably close to 12# in the crisper drawer of our refrigerator two months ago and we're still using them, and they're still really good. When I harvest them, I throw the few weird shaped or small ones out of the garden for the dogs to munch on while I'm working and they love them too! They won't touch store bought carrots but they love these. :^) I hope Burpee always carries this variety.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tasting, but not quite what I expected I live in Las Vegas, which is very hot in the summer, and they are growing just fine. Some of the tops are a little yellow, but they are good. They have a great taste, but they are shorter that I expected. When they say 6 inches, the full six inches are not that thick. It has been about 80 - 85 days and 4 out of the 12 have the tops out of the ground already. They are thick at the top, but at the bottom they are only about a millimeter or so. I guess that is what they meant, but I was slightly disappointed. For a new gardener, like me, they are amazing, but from what I have seen personally, don't get them if you want store-sized carrots. They aren't even half of the size, but they have a great taste.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still growing... I planted these also in February and they seem to be the only veggie that is doing well in the South Florida sun. The carrot tops are getting taller and very green and I can see the tops of the carrots coming through the soil! They are still very small and seem to be growing slowly, but I also did not thin them out so I'm sure their a little crowded in there. I'm hoping they get big and delicious!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Okay I used the seed tape for this carrot. I had spotty germination and the carrots were so-so. I will try another variety next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So sweet! This carrot was absolutly fantastic.We enjoyed the six inch carrots throughout the summer in salads and soups, and left some in the garden throughout the fall to use in various stews. If using this carrot in cooking there is no need to add store bought sweeteners. These carrots must however be thinned to about an inch apart from each other in every direction, or they will grow crooked. They do especially well in a mixture of compost dirt,dehydrated maneur and a little bit of sand. I planted these seeds in a six foot by three foot bed, utilizing as much space as possible and ending up harvesting close to five hundred beautiful carrots. A great variety for any avid gardener!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Carrots These are our favorite carrots. I plant every two weeks all summer long, into the fall. They are the perfect size, easy to pick and peel, and the best taste that we have found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orange You Glad...Yes, I am. These are the first carrots I have grown, and although I only planted a small amount this past year I was pleased with the results. I crowded them together a bit too much, but the carrots still grew well and came out looking like champs. We ate some at home (raw or in spaghetti sauce) and were very impressed with the flavor; co-workers I shared the surplus with were also very complimentary.
