Carrot – Kuroda – Daucus carota var. sativus

Biennial This long, excellent juicing carrot is sweet, tender, and has smooth sides. It has a red-orange, juicy and tender 23 cm root when allowed to grow to full form.

Did You Know? Carrots are extremely high in vitamin A. They are also a good source of vitamin C and potassium.

The best-tasting orange carrot we have tried, New Kuroda is sugary sweet and the texture is ultra-fine grained. An improvement on the famous Japanese Kuroda type carrot, the roots have a blunt tip and vibrant orange colour. This refined root will please even the most discerning palates, but don’t let the silky soft texture fool you — this is a hardy breed. The roots can power through tough soil and blistering heat, producing winning roots under even the most brutal conditions. This Japanese heirloom was bred to withstand tropical heat and therefore is the top spring- or summer-grown variety that we have seen.

Grow Notes
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 in full sun. 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 seeds 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.
