Carrot, Coral (Organic)

Daucus carota. 55 days.

An early improved Nantes type carrot. Unique orange color has almost pinkish undertones. Flavor is what really makes Coral a standout with its delicious sweetness and an aroma to match – perfect for snacking. Coreless, with better tip fill than most OP carrots. European variety introduced to the US by Fedco Seeds in Maine. Coral carrot was recommended to us by our good friend Carolina who farms on the Oregon Coast – the same friend who turned us on to Piracicaba broccoli. When Carolina tells us a variety is worth growing, we listen! When searching for a replacement for a farm favorite hybrid that had been discontinued, she discovered Coral and preferred it’s flavor in her trials. Best harvested promptly – roots may split if left in the ground too long.

Direct sow 2-4 seeds per inch in rows 6-12” apart, April through late July. Keep moist to ensure good germination, which may take up to 3 weeks. Thin to 2” spacing for large roots. Flavor sweetens after frost. A great choice for winter gardens.

Seed Saving

Seed saving is not recommended in locations where Queen Anne’s Lace (wild carrot) is present. Collect seeds from at least 20 plants in their second year. Cut seed head when seeds are dry, remove seeds by hand or by dancing. Winnow or screen to clean. Isolate from other carrots and wild carrot by ½ mile.

    Perfect for Growing With Kids

    Where did you grow this variety? Washington

    My five-year old declares these to be the most delicious carrots she’s ever tasted. She was very excited to yank them straight out of the ground and immediately eat them after a quick rinse from the garden hose. These are the perfect carrots to grow with kids. We planted them together in April, and harvested them in June. They’re a great spring carrot that’s ready for harvest pretty quickly, easy to for a kid to yank from the ground, pretty to look at, and very tender and tasty.
