60 days. Parisian Carrot Seeds. Daucus carota subsp. sativus. Non-GMO. Heirloom. The Parisian Carrot is unique in both its shape and ability to grow in difficult soils. This carrot variety grows roots that are very short and squat, they are practically in a globe shape. Because of their short growth pattern, they can be grown in heavy soils where long carrots are difficult to grow. Like all carrots, it does best in well-drained and sandy soils, but unlike others, it can grow in rocky soil. ~18,000 seeds/oz.
Open-pollinated heirloom Parisian carrot seeds are a cool weather crop best sown directly in the garden in early spring or late fall. Like many root vegetables, non-GMO Parisian carrot does not transplant well and should be directly sown. Plant 2-3 Parisian seeds ¼" deep and 1-2" apart in very loose, well-tilled, and well-drained garden soil in full sun. Open-pollinated carrot seeds germinate in 14-21 days, thinning back to 1 plant every 2" as true leaves establish. Avoid using nitrogen-rich vegetable garden fertilizers which are known to cause carrot growth abnormalities.
NOTE: For round roots, be sure to provide even moisture during growth. Drought stress will result in an elongated shape as the roots reach for moisture.
Parisian Carrots in the Vegetable Garden
Parisian is an early orange-red carrot that grows almost more like the shape of a large radish. Excels in clay or rocky soil where other carrots have problems developing properly. Its flavor is legendary and is highly sought after by organic gourmet restaurants. Fantastic organic market seller and very popular with the kids because of its size. Makes a great bunched presentation.
Carrot is a sugary sweet root vegetable second only to the beet in overall sugar content. Carrot is one of the easiest, quickest, and most satisfying garden crops and lends itself to as many savory dishes as it does sweet. Although considered a predominantly orange vegetable, the carrot is available in a wide selection of exquisite heirloom colors such as red, purple, yellow, and white. Carrots can be sown every couple weeks for successive season-long harvesting.
Harvesting Parisian Carrots
Parisian carrots are ready for harvest sooner than most other varieties due to their small size. After fifty five days, the Parisian carrots are ready to be harvested.Most varieties of carrot are ready for harvest about 70-80 days from sowing, while smaller varieties such as Parisian are ready a few weeks sooner. Regardless of color, carrots are usually ripe for harvest when the root begins to show above soil.
A sandy and well-tilled garden will help in harvesting, providing a loose soil to safely uproot the carrot crop without the need for tools. For more hardened soils, use a specialized hand cultivator or garden hori-hori knife.
