CR314A - Coreo
Very fine internal and external colour set this uniform hybrid carrot apart from the rest. Its tops are compact, and strongly attached for good bunching — which makes them very nice for market gardeners. The roots are smooth and crisp with good, clean carrot flavour. Coreo carrot seeds have intermediate resistance to Alternaria, and they are well suited to early season planting. Plant carrots with bean seeds, Brassicas, leeks, lettuce, onions, peas, peppers, pole beans, radish, rosemary, sage, and tomatoes. Avoid planting with dill, parsnips, and potatoes. Carrots planted near tomatoes may have stunted roots, but will have exceptional flavour

How To Grow
Whatever type of carrot seeds you plant it’s easy to learn how to grow carrots from seed. Here are some common characteristics. Carrots are biennials, so they use their leaves in the first year, to gather energy from the sun to build a big, starchy root. This is where they store their energy over the winter. The following spring they use that stored energy to send up a tall umbel of white flowers, looking strikingly similar to Queen Anne’s Lace to which they are closely related. When the weather gets cold in the first year of growth, carrots convert a lot of their starches to sugars, so the roots become sweeter in winter.
