Coreless crunchy carrots
Day to Maturity: 75
Want to get the carrots planted super-quick this season—with better spacing and more accuracy than you’ve ever had before? Rely on Seed. There’s no handling tiny seeds, thinning young plants, or worrying about holes. You literally lay these tissue-paper strips down on top of the soil where you want the plants to grow, cutting them to fit the space and arranging it in any pattern you like. Then rake or sprinkle about a half inch of soil on top of the Seeds and water them in well. That’s it—in a few weeks you’ll see evenly-spaced, healthy green shoots that need no thinning.
Destined to be your favorite carrot in the garden, Merida Hybrid Carrot is a joy to grow, harvest, and especially eat. This Nantes type is ready more quickly than many other full-size varieties, and it offers wonderfully straight, blunt-ended roots of bright orange with almost no core and plenty of crisp, ultra-sweet flavor.
Merida Hybrid Carrot is ready for harvest when it’s about 6 inches long, though it will grow an additional inch or more if you need to delay the picking. Juicy, straight, and very uniform, it’s a good choice for canning because all the roots are so reliably the same size and shape. But these carrots taste so good, they might not make it into the Mason jar.
The green tops make harvesting easy, too. Unlike some varieties, these greens grow thick, straight, and tall, so you can just grab and pull up the root. Very strong, they are nutritious as well.
