Nelson variety is a favorite carrot well suited for sowing during hot weather. Very sweet 6", cylindrical, blunt roots are very smooth, tender, and crisp with deep orange color. Ready in only 56 days however you can harvest them either at baby or full size. Coated in an organically-approved clay pellet for easy spacing.  30-40 seeds per package

Sow carrots anytime from early spring to mid-August, 1/4- 1/2" deep at about 2" apart. Sprinkle the soil surface with water frequently to keep moist. Don't allow soil to get crusted before the emergence of seedlings which take 1-3 weeks, depending on temperature and moisture.

Carrots may be dug any time after they reach a good orange color (bright, not pale), at which stage their flavor and sweetness develops. Generally the best harvest period lasts about 3 weeks (longer in cool, fall weather), after which time the roots may crack or the taste and appearance may decline. Make a few sowings at 3 week intervals for a continuous supply of tender carrots at their prime.™ Cover the tops of the carrots with soil if needed to prevent them turning green and bitter from exposure.
