Description
Fast to grow and one of the earliest to mature, excellent for early crops and ideal for early planting. They have good resistance to splitting and cracking. Very easy to grow and a perfect crop for children. With a sweet flavour and crisp texture they are excellent for using raw. While you can use containers of various depths to grow carrots, smaller varieties such as Amsterdam are usually best. And if your good soil is a bit shallow with a rocky base, these are great!

Grow Notes
Baby carrots do not need full sun, but they require a minimum of six hours per day. However, the more sunlight your garden can get, the better.

Carrots need a good quality, well worked-over, friable (lightly textured) soil to produce a long, straight taproot. Carrots grown in clay and compacted soils will be stumpy and have multiple forks. Avoid feeding your Carrot plants too much fertiliser as this can also encourage forking.

Try to remove any small rocks from the soil too as they’ll cause forking if the carrot root grows into them. Carrots can be grown in full sun or in a location that receives light shade for part of the day.

Sow
Sow direct in Spring, Summer or Autumn. Carrot seeds are quite small so mix with sand or fine potting mix prior to sowing or use a seed dispenser, seed tape or tool such as a damp toothpick if needing aid in sowing them.

Plant seed 5mm deep. You can either sow several seed into each planting hole spaced 4cm apart or alternatively you can sow more densely along a trench, with rows 25cm apart.

After 4 weeks thin to healthy seedlings leaving about a 4cm gap between seedlings. Sow a few seed every week to ensure a continuing supply of delicious carrots.

Keep soil moist but never wet.

Protect young seedlings from pests, pets and weather until they are established.

Germination
14-21 days at 10-30°C

Maturity
70 days. Baby carrots are harvested when they are about three inches long but can be picked at any stage between 50-90 days.
