Germination days: 14
Grow days: 80
Planting depth: 0.25"
Spacing: 3.0"
Seeds per pound: 320000
Seeds per Ounce: 20000
When to plant: Spring, Early Summer
How to grow: Sow seed 3" apart or broadcast carefully in deep, well prepared bed for long, well-shaped roots. Avoid fresh manure or excess nitrogen which causes hairy, forked roots. Cover the seed lightly with soil. Do not allow the soil to dry out or crust (in soil that crust easily, try covering seed with sand, vermiculite, or potting mix). Germination can be slow; presoaking in warm water can help. Plant late summer for a fall crop that can be used after sweetening by frost. Keep bed weeded for best growth, and thin to at least 3" apart.
Taste: Complex, carroty flavor.
