Carrot, Carota Colorate (mixed colors

Carrot Colorate Mid-early.  Mixed variety with three different colored carrots in one great mix: yellow, white, and orange. Great taste and color- very eye-catching! Mid-early producer, vigorous and productive.

The carrot is considered to be one of the holy trinity of Italian cooking (onion, celery and carrot). Jaune de Doubs is a yellow carrot once used to feed livestock, but now prized for its flavour.   Try these carrots roasted with Moroccan spices or with honey. Young ones, pulled  when thinning rows, are delicious in salads or used as sticks in dips.

Annual: Sow direct in well-dug and raked ground,1cm deep, from February to July. Be careful not to crush the foliage when weeding, as the smell will attract carrot root fly. Some plant rows of onions or garlic each side of the carrots to keep off the root fly, which tunnels through the roots. Alternatively cover with light garden fleece once they are growing.
