Sugarsnax Hybrid Carrot has gorgeous, smooth, long and dark orange roots and a flavor so sweet that you'll be tempted to pull one up and eat it every time you walk by. Its super-sweet roots are loaded with beta carotene—and they're delicious in salads, raw vegetable platters, cooked, frozen or canned. To harvest these sweet and crunchy carrots, we recommend loosening the dirt around the roots before pulling them up—or digging up the roots. To conserve space in the garden and mark carrot rows, plant radish seed alongside carrots. Radishes germinate and mature quickly.

  • Germination: 6-14 days

    Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-85ºF. The cooler the soil the longer it takes for germination, up to 3 weeks.

    Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

    Sowing Outdoors: Start 3 weeks before last frost into mid-summer. Sow lightly, thin to 1-3” apart. The larger the carrot variety the more space needed between them. The soil moisture should be maintained regularly until germination, letting soil dry out during this period may result in lower germination.

    Harvest: Start when carrots reach finger size for baby carrots. Carrots planted for summer harvest will hold in the ground for a few weeks but tend to split if they stay in the ground too long. Late season carrots hold longer and become sweeter in the cooler weather.

    Tips: Using a row cover helps to maintain moisture for germination. Carrots prefer a loose soil, free of rubble. Use the shorter varieties for heavy soils. Keep well weeded and cover any exposed carrot with soil or mulch to prevent greening. An excess of nitrogen in the soil cause the roots to become hairy.
