Black Nebula Carrot

CARROT Black Nebula

An attractive, dark purple "black" carrot.  Its deep purple color goes all the way through the carrot and keeps its color after cooking.  It grows and tastes just like a regular carrot.  It can be eaten fresh, roasted or steamed.  Approximately 75 days to maturity.

Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Seed directly into vegetable garden as soon as soil is workable. Cover seeds with 1/8 inch fine soil.

THINNING: When plants are 2-4 inches tall, thin to 2 to 3 inches apart.

SPACING: Rows can be spaced 15-18 inches apart, or much closer if limited for space. In beds 2-4 inches apart in all directions.

GERMINATION: 2 weeks in temperature of 60 degrees F. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Plant at 2 or 3 week intervals for continual harvest. Planting can continue until mid-July. Carrots grow best in a sunny location with rich light soil and regular thorough watering. For best results, fertilize and cultivate soil prior to planting to a depth of 12 inches.
