Organic Imperator Carrots Planting Instructions:
Plant Imperator Carrots ½" deep and 2" apart in full sun. Time between planting and harvest is about 75 days. Use well-worked soil for best results. Your carrots will grow best in loose soil that is light. If the soil is too heavy, use compost. Plant the seeds in rows 12" apart and cover lightly with ½" of soil. Gently firm the soil and keep moist. Once the seedlings are 3" tall, thin plants to 2 to 4" apart, depending on the desired carrot sides. Keep the bed weeded and consistently watered during dry seasons.
Organic Imperator Carrots Harvesting Instructions:
To make harvesting easier, soak the ground before pulling the carrots up. As you pull the carrot roots up, twist the tops off. After harvest, cut the greens off the top to about ¼ to ½" above the shoulder. If storing carrots for winter, twist off the tops but do not wash the carrots. Layer them in damp sand or sawdust. In warm climates, leave the carrots in the garden during the winter, topped with a thick layer of mulch.
