CR276A - White Satin Coated
Luminous white roots with strong, 40-45cm (16-18") green tops. The 25cm (10") long cylindrical roots have a unique crisp texture, and juicy flavour. White Satin carrot seeds produce handsome Danvers shaped roots that store well and juice well. Try White Satin roasted as part of a winter meal with other coloured carrots or on their own. It is thought that the ancestral wild carrot had roots that were white, but this is a more recent hybrid, bred for uniformity and great flavour. At first sight, your neighbours will think you are harvesting parsnips, but on closer inspection they are most definitely white carrots.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

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.
