Carrot Seeds LUNAR WHITE
Price for Package of 25 seeds.
This wonderful new white carrot variety is nearly coreless, with a nicely mild flavor. It is a large carrot at up to 12 inches when mature, yet is also very suitable for baby carrot use. Although the roots underground are bright creamy white, the hips can show a bit of green which can be avoided by hilling up the soil around the plants as they grow.
Dig or till the carrot bed deeply when the soil is on the dry side to avoid making lumps.
Work the soil to a fine texture 15-25cm (6-10 in.) deep to allow the carrot roots to grow long and shapely.
Avoid freshly-manured soil, which may produce hairy, rough roots and will cause forks and splits;
Sow seed thinly in rows, 1cm (1/2 in.) deep, 30-40cm (12-16 in.) between the rows as soon as the danger of hard frost has passed. Try to get about 4 seeds per 2cm (1 in.).
Thin to 16-20 carrots per 30 cm (1ft.) for fresh eating and 6-10 carrots per 30 cm (1ft.) for mature crops, depending on the root size you want, and keep weeded and watered. Dispose of thinned seedlings to avoid attracting Carrot Fly.
As they grow, push soil up over any exposed roots to prevent a green shoulder.
