What's so special about our carrot seeds?

Most carrots have pointed tips. When they reach the bottom of your garden box they try to grow along the bottom and get crooked. Skinny L-shaped carrots anyone? 
 
Our carrots don't have that problem. They have rounded tips. So, they don’t grow crooked, they just grow thicker. 
 
This variety is ideal for summer or fall. You can leave them in your garden box for a long time before harvesting in the winter. 
 
Even better, they are delicious: sweet, crunchy, and full of flavor. 

Sowing and growing

16 carrots fit in 1 square patch. To sow, poke 16 holes and drop a few seeds in each. When the seedlings come up, thin them out carefully so the remaining carrots have enough room to grow.
 
Thinning out means cutting away extra seedlings at the soil line. If you uproot them like weeds, you'll disturb the remaining carrots. Same goes for transplanting: just don’t do it 😉
 
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are included in the Planty Gardening app.  

How do you use carrots?

You can enjoy the carrot roots by themselves. Eat them raw by the fistful or grated in salads. You can also boil, stew, or roast them. 
 
The leaves are edible and super healthy. They taste similar to parsley: spicy with a hint of carrot flavor. Process raw in a (tabouleh) salad with the carrot root, tomato, onion, chickpeas, and cumin. Or make a pesto. Or toss in a stir fry. The options are endless.
