This red-orange Parisian carrot is a 19th century French heirloom with a round shape and smooth surface resembling a radish. Its 1-inch round root is very sweet, tender, and nearly coreless, making it an ideal choice for early maturing crops of flavorful carrots. Excellent carrot to be grown in shallow soils. This variety produces uniform crops that are perfect for your next garden feast! 500 mg ~ 350 seeds

Plant seeds directly in the garden in early spring starting about 2 weeks before average last frost date. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-85 degrees. Thin seedlings when they are about 1" high. Successive sowings can be made every two to three weeks. Do not plant if crop will mature in the heat of summer as it may result in poor quality carrots. Planting can resume late summer for a fall harvest. Cut off all but 1" off tops before storing. Even at optimum temperature carrot seed can take up to 18 days to germinate.
