Growers and home gardeners alike will love this new hybrid nantes carrot for its resistance to breaking and tolerance of very late harvests. The roots are smooth and bright orange, growing to 18-22cm (7-9") in length. The tops are upright and strongly attached. Volcano carrot seeds have a high resistance to Alternaria, and intermediate resistance to Cavity Spot. Be sure to keep the carrot bed good and moist during the slow germination period, and then water as evenly as possible to prevent cracking. Loose soil and careful spacing are critical to growing perfectly straight, well formed roots. Read more on How to Grow Carrots.

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.
