Carrot Purple Sun Seeds
Info: The carrot `Purple Sun` is a new breed of purple Haze and has an even darker deeper purple tone. Some roots are also bright inside. The carrots have a good, sweet aroma and are suitable for raw and cooked consumption. In addition, this variety contains many healthy anthocyanins.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow from Febuary under cloches or fleece. Can be sown outdoors as late as August. Sow them as thinly as possible, this reduces the amount of thinning necessary. Mix the seeds with a handful of sharp sand and sow the seeds and sand together. Plants should be kept well watered and carrots prefer a sandy, well-drained soil. Too much nitrogen will cause the carrots to grow hairy little roots all up and down the carrot.
