Great Luck with Carrots in the Fall

Post  erbarnett on 3/25/2012, 4:13 pm

I planted carrots last fall, about September 1, and had great results. I used a variety called 2X4, which can get to be over 10 inches long. I pulled them up when about 8 inches or less, and they were delicious. They were very sweet and tasty. The trick is to keep them constantly moist, especially during the germination phase. I have some in my SFG now, and they are doing fine. We used the foliage in a stir fry, and they too were good, although a little stringy. I had no problems with insects.

The foliage is very beautiful. It looks ferny, and can grow up to 12 inches tall.
