Carrot - Dragon - Daucus carota

Biennial Purple outside, orange inside. This is how to get kids to eat their carrots. Dragon has the Danvers carrot broad shoulders and rich, spicy-sweet flavor. It stays colorful when cooked. This beautiful carrot was bred by John Navazio who refined it from a USDA selection.

Soil & Water: Carrots prefer light, deeply tilled soils with plenty of added organic matter, good drainage, a pH range of 6.0-6.6, and regular water. Apply a mulch layer once established to keep roots cool. Carrots develop best at a soil temperature of 60-70°F.

Planting & Growing: Seed directly 2-3 weeks before the last frost. Carrots germinate quickly at a soil temperatures of 75°F, but will germinate in soils as cold as 45°F just more slowly. Mix the small seeds with dry coffee grounds or sand to improve seed distribution. Over planting requires thinning to provide sufficient growing room.

Harvesting & Storage: If necessary, loosen soil to pull carrots without breaking off tops. Trim off foliage to extend storage time. Layer roots in a container with damp paper towels and store in cool, moist conditions. Also good for canning or freezing.

Did You Know? Most carrots were originally purple or yellow and the orange color was a mutation.
