Organic carrots from seeds are not only pretty but a perennial you can harvest in cold weather
From our favorite organic grower in Toronto Canada, Laura Watt brings a seed mix of white, yellow, orange, red and purple carrots. An easy crop to grow, these show stoppers impress even the pickiest eater.
Interesting fact: carrots weren’t always orange. Orange was a “selected” color by modern-day farmers who chose them for mass production over other natural carrot colors.
All color of carrots started from seeds taste the same. But are certainly prettier than other kinds.
200+ certified organic seeds per pack
Planting instructions: Sow seeds a 1/4-inch deep in tidy rows. Thin to 2-inches apart. Soil should be sandy and well-worked, make sure to remove all stones. Moderate water. Full sun to partial shade. 74 days.
A few seeds sown in the flower garden will provide a spray of green in spring and summer. The white flowers late in the season will pick up the wind.
