This trio of colored carrots are creamy white, bright orange and a deep, dark purple with orange centers. All three are crisp, smooth and evenly cylindrical, growing to 8" long for a colorful harvest of festive roots. Their flavor is reliably sweet with a nice, crunchy texture. You'll enjoy this mix over a long season. Cut all three into carrot sticks or slice/shred into salads for a good tasting party of colors.

Planting & Care
Start Seeds Outdoors
In the Spring, once the danger of 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 - 20 days. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away as seedlings catch up quickly. Be sure to thin young carrots several times so seedlings are about 2" 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 cover or burlap to help retain moisture during the germination period and water right through it. Keep carrots well watered and thinned. For a late season crop, sow again 3 months before the first expected frost.
Harvest & Use: Let these baby carrots color up to orange before harvesting for best flavor. Pull as babies or let fully size up. Sauté or steam just until tender crisp and serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice, sweet butter and fresh dill, or try buttered and glazed with a little maple syrup or honey.
