Carrot Culture: Very hardy. Early carrots can be sown by late April in the north, earlier in the south as soil temperatures warm to optimal germination temps. Can take up to 3 weeks to germinate; keep rows from drying out for faster emergence. Sow carrots for winter storage in mid-late June. Thinning is critical: At 3" high thin to ½" apart, at 6" thin again to 1" apart. Minimal germination temperature 40°, optimal range 60–85°, optimal temperature 80°. Emergence takes 6 days at 77°.
Maintaining a good crop rotation and thinning is the best preventive against disease.
