Description

Strike it rich with these long, handsome, sweet carrots. Our favorite in the Imperator hybrid class, King Midas offers large size and rich, fully-developed carrot flavor. The vigorous roots grow steadily into smooth, nearly coreless 8" - 9" beauties, slightly tapered with pointed tips. The well-filled carrots have the deep orange flesh that indicates an especially high level of health-enhancing beta-carotene. Slice them into abundant crunchy carrot stick snacks, or fat carrot "coins" to lightly steam, sauté or stir-fry.

Approx. Seeds per Pack: 1000 Seeds

Planting & Care

Planting:
Start Seeds Outdoors
In the Spring, once the danger of a hard frost has passed, sow seeds in full sun in finely-worked, fertile soil. Sow 1/4" deep and 1/2" apart in rows 8" apart, or broadcast thinly in beds and cover lightly. Keep seedbed evenly moist as carrots can be slow to germinate, emerging over 10 - 21 days. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away as seedlings catch up quickly. Thin young carrots several times so seedlings are 2" - 3" apart and have room to size up.

Growing: Carrots like well-worked soil and need consistent moisture to grow well. If your soil tends to dry out, cover seedbed with floating row covers to help retain moisture during the germination period. Keep carrots well weeded throughout the growing season. Plant again 3 months before the first expected fall frost for a late crop.

Harvest & Use: Let carrots size up to at least 6" - 8" long before pulling for best sweet flavor. Eat them raw, sliced up as a tasty, fresh snacks, sautéed, steamed or braised. Set off their flavor with fresh lemon or orange juice and a sprinkling of minced herbs like fresh mint or thyme, or glaze with a little honey and ginger or cinnamon. Wonderful in colorful stir-fries all season long.
