Heirloom Carrots are some of the premier baby carrots available. Bright orange, these heirloom carrots grow about 9 cm long. Each sweet carrot is crisp with a tender core. Their small size lets them grow well in containers, as well as out in the garden. Little fingers are a Nantes type of carrot. Bred in France, they develop their characteristic orange colour earlier than other varieties, these carrots can be harvested early at 8-9cm. Don’t let them stay in the ground beyond around 68 days from sprouting or they begin to lose their unique gourmet flavour and texture.

Carrots will grow well in any open, well cultivated, deep garden soil. As the seed is quite small, mix it with some sand when sowing. Once soil temperature rises above 7.5 C sow seed about 7-15 mm deep in rows spaced 45-60 cm apart. Sow seed at 5-day intervals over several weeks. Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the 2 week germination period but avoid crusting over the soil as this will greatly reduce the number of seedlings that emerge. Thin the seedlings during the early stages of growth until they are 5 cm apart. Keep the plants evenly watered, weed-free, and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Harvest any time after the carrot roots develop good colour and snacking size.
