Apply a mulch layer once established to keep roots cool. Carrots develop best at a soil temperature of 60-70°F.

Parisian carrots, also known as "Paris Market" or "Tonda di Parigi," are a unique and delightful addition to the world of carrots. These miniature carrots have their own distinct charm and culinary potential.

Characteristics of Parisian Carrots

Parisian carrots are known for their petite size and round, almost spherical shape. Unlike traditional long carrots, these carrots are compact, making them an excellent choice for small gardens or container gardening. Here are some key characteristics of Parisian carrots:

  1. Size: Parisian carrots typically reach a diameter of about 1 to 1.5 inches when fully mature, making them perfect for snacking or adding to dishes as a decorative element.

  2. Color: They feature a vibrant orange hue, much like their larger counterparts, and have a smooth, uniform skin.

  3. Flavor: Parisian carrots offer a sweet and crisp texture, making them a delightful addition to salads, stir-fries, and other culinary creations.

Culinary Uses

Parisian carrots can add a unique touch to your culinary endeavors. Their small size and sweet flavor make them versatile in the kitchen. Here are some creative ways to use Parisian carrots in your dishes:

  1. Snacking: These mini carrots are perfect for snacking. Their small size makes them easy to dip in hummus, ranch dressing, or other favorite dips.

  2. Salads: Add a pop of color and flavor to your salads by slicing or grating Parisian carrots and tossing them with other fresh vegetables.

  3. Roasting: Roasting Parisian carrots with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of herbs can bring out their natural sweetness and create a delicious side dish.

  4. Garnishes: Use Parisian carrots as decorative garnishes for dishes like coleslaw, sandwiches, or appetizers. Their round shape adds visual appeal to your presentations.

Growing Parisian Carrots

If you're interested in cultivating Parisian carrots in your garden, here are some essential tips to consider:

  1. Soil Preparation: Parisian carrots thrive in well-drained, loose soil. Prepare the soil by removing stones and debris to ensure the carrots have room to grow evenly.

  2. Planting: Sow Parisian carrot seeds directly into the garden bed or container, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Ensure the seeds are planted at the right depth, approximately ¼ inch deep.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Carrots benefit from even moisture to prevent cracking or splitting.

  4. Thinning: As the carrots begin to grow, thin them out to provide ample space for each to develop fully. Leave about 2-3 inches of space between each carrot.

  5. Harvesting: Parisian carrots are typically ready for harvest within 50-60 days after sowing. Gently pull them from the soil when they reach their mature size.

  6. Storage: Store harvested Parisian carrots in a cool, dark place. They can stay fresh for several weeks when stored correctly.

Parisian carrots offer a charming and flavorful addition to your garden and kitchen. Their petite size, vibrant color, and sweet taste make them a versatile choice for snacking, salads, roasting, and garnishing. With the right growing conditions and care, you can enjoy these delightful mini carrots in your culinary creations, adding a touch of elegance and flavor to your dishes.

What fun!

Planted these in the Spring of 2018. It's June and I just pulled up a small one to taste test - a very carrot-y flavor! They are planted in a shallow planter and doing well. I am happy with the results so far...but will leave them in ground a while longer to see how big they get.

Awesome carrot

I've never had much luck with carrots because of heavy soil, but these have a great germ rate and have grown quickly, doubling in size much faster than I expected. Hopeful for actual carrots this year!
