Heirloom Organically grown Black Nebula Carrot Seeds are a unique and rare variety of carrot that boast a deep purple color and a sweet, rich flavor. These seeds are highly sought after by gardeners and farmers alike due to their heirloom status, meaning they are open-pollinated and non-GMO. Additionally, these seeds are certified organic, which means they are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, ensuring a high-quality, safe and healthy crop. The Black Nebula Carrot is believed to have originated in the Middle East or Asia and is known for its high yield. These seeds are perfect for those looking to add a touch of color and flavor to their garden or farm.
Carrots grown in garden are full of flavor and texture. They are easy to grow as long as they are planted in loose, sandy soil during the cooler periods of the growing season—spring and fall (carrots can tolerate frost). Depending on the variety and local growing conditions, carrots may take anywhere from 2 to 4 months to mature. Plant them in the spring and summer for a continuous harvest through fall!
- Proper soil preparation is extremely important for carrot growing. If the carrot roots can’t easily grow unobstructed, it can lead to stunted and misshapen crops. Till down 12 inches and make sure there are no rocks, stones, or even soil clumps that could impede your carrots’ growth.
- Sow seeds outdoors 3 to 5 weeks before the last spring frost date. For continuous harvest, sow seeds every 2 weeks through late spring. For a fall harvest, sow seeds in mid- to late summer—starting about 10 weeks before your first fall frost.
- Sow seeds directly in the garden rather than transplanting. Carrots do not like to have their roots disturbed.
- Keep the soil moist with frequent shallow watering. For small carrot seeds to germinate, the soil shouldn’t form a hard crust on top; cover with a layer of vermiculite or fine compost to prevent a crust from forming.
- Avoid amending the soil with nitrogen-rich fertilizer, which causes carrots to fork and grow little roots.
- If the ground has clay, consider planting in a raised bed at least 12 inches deep and filled with airy, loamy soil.
- Choose a location that receives full sunlight. Carrot plants can tolerate partial shade too.
- Soil must be loose, sandy or loamy, and airy so that carrot roots can easily push down through the soil.
- When seedlings are an inch tall, thin so that they stand 3 to 4 inches apart. Snip tops with scissors instead of pulling them out to prevent damage to the fragile roots of the remaining plants.
- Gently mulch carrots to retain moisture, speed germination, and block the sun from hitting the roots directly.
- Water at least one inch (about ½ gallon per square foot) per week to start, then two inches as roots mature.
- Weed diligently, but be careful not to disturb the young carrots’ roots while doing so.
