Very flavourful, striking red carrots that are meant to be cooked rather than eaten raw. This variety is extremely high in lycopene, the same antioxidant found in tomatoes. The colour actually increases when cooked, and the lycopene becomes more accessible to the body. Nutri Red carrot seeds produce slender, red, gourmet carrots to 23cm (9″) in length. For successful carrot crops, be sure to thin the row so there are not more than 1 seedling per inch. Later, thin to 4-10cm (1.5 – 4″) apart. Apply carrot fertilizer to the row at the time of planting.
Matures in 76 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
