What’s Up Doc?

Wouldn’t Bugs Bunny be surprised to see this carrot rainbow? This was my first attempt at growing carrots and was delighted to harvest these jewels in late October. I planted the cultivars ‘Little Finger’ and ‘Carnival Blend’ on July 7.


I will definitely plant these again this spring. I’ll have to remember to be patient though. It can take up to 25 days for seedlings to emerge. These took longer that that – probably because they are a cool season crop and I planted in July. It was well worth the wait!

Share your successes. Comment with your favorite cultivars.

  1. An interesting cultivar I've tried and had good success with is 'Cosmic Purple.' They're purple outside, orange inside!

  2. I grew another purple/orange cultivar called Purple Dragon. Very tasty even though they got too large before we dug them up. We had some on the table at the Harvest Festival for kids to guess what they were. It was hard for them! One clever child said “Rutabaga?”
