Daucus carota sativus. Funky purple Dragons, tasty solar yellows, and sweet orange. Nantes comprise this mix of three of our favorites. Easy to grow. Sow any time in May, planing seed sparingly 12 mm (1/2 in ) deep, with rows 45 cm (18 in) apart. Full sun. Thin to 2.5 cm (1 in) between plants. These carrots prefer deep well-worked soil. Excellent for snacking, juicing or cooking, with good winter storage potential.
