Carrot - Little Finger - Daucus carota var. sativus
Biennial Little Finger is a gourmet baby carrot with 3" long, cylindrical, blunt roots. It has a very small core, smooth skin, and a deep-orange color. The tops are weak; harvest carefully and early. This baby carrot was developed in France for canning and pickling whole.
Soil & Water: Carrots prefer light, deeply tilled soils with plenty of added matter, good drainage, a pH range of 6.0-6.6, and regular water. Apply a mulch layer once established to keep roots cool.
Planting & Growing: Seed directly into 75F soil for quick germination. Mix the small seeds with dry coffee grounds or sand to improve seed distribution. Over planting requires thinning to provide sufficient growing room.
Harvesting & Storage: Loosen soil to pull carrots without breaking off tops. Trim off foliage to extend storage time. Layer roots in a container with damp medium and store in cool, moist conditions. Also good for canning or freezing.
Did You Know? Carrots are extremely high in vitamin A. They're also a good source of vitamin C and potassium.
