Cultivation: Prepare fertile, deeply dug, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring or fall in a sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Thin by cutting tops to avoid disturbing remaining roots. Mulch to keep soil cool, conserve moisture and to keep exposed "shoulders" from turning green and bitter. Another option is to hill soil over the shoulders. Root quality is best when soil temperatures are 60F to 70F.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Good for eating fresh, as well as sautéing or steaming. Cooked carrots retain their purple color.
