Item details

Handmade

Small size, but big flavor! Sweet and tender, the round shape is a unique feature among carrots. Sometimes known as Tonda di Parigi, Parisian carrots are miniature globe-shaped carrots, a 19th century market favorite from France. Their excellent flavor and adaptability to heavy or rocky soil make them more than just an heirloom novelty, though they are highly appreciated for specialty purposes and gourmet restaurants. Wonderful for container gardening.

They might be mistaken for radishes except for the orange red color of the skins and flesh. Consider planting a row with a summertime gourmet meal in mind. Take the time to peel the cute little carrots and serve them as a side dish to impress your friends!

~ planting ~

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 45°F, ideally 60°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 10 to 12 weeks before your average first fall frost date. In very warm climates, carrots are grown primarily in fall, winter, and spring.
When to Start Inside: Not recommended; root disturbance stunts growth.

Prepare the soil 3 weeks before the last expected spring frost or when the soil temperature reaches 45 degrees F. Parisian carrots can grow even in heavy soil. Build up a raised mound in the row, about 8" wide; sow the seeds on it, and cover them with 1/4" very loose soil. Keep the soil moist, but do not allow the the area above the seeds to become hard - this may prevent the seeds from germinating. Sow more seeds every 3-6 weeks for a continuous crop. For companion planting benefits, plant these organic carrot seeds with aromatic herbs or onions; this will repel the carrot fly and its maggots.

~ growing ~

When the seedlings reach 2" high, gently thin them to 2-4" apart, depending on desired carrot size. The farther apart they are, the bigger they will grow. Do not allow the soil to dry out. When the tops of the carrots begin to emerge from the soil, cover them with mulch to keep them tender. Keep weeds under control to prevent the young carrots from being stunted. This variety of carrot grows well even in heavy or rocky soil, in addition to growing well in containers.

~ harvesting ~

Begin gathering Parisian carrots when they reach a diameter of 1-2".
