Koral Carrot (Daucus carota) is a late and very productive carrot variety recommended particularly for processing juices, purees, frozen food, and preserves. Koral carrot stores well and does not lose its nutritional nor gustatory assets in the process. It does not bifurcate, break, turn green, and it does not accumulate nitrates either. It produces long 20 cm, intensely orange roots that contain plenty of sugar, water, and carotenes, which makes them exceptionally tasty, sweet, and juicy.
Koral is grown from sowing, intended either for summer and autumn harvest and consumption or for winter storing. Seeds for the summer harvest are sown in April, and for winter storing in the first half of May. Seeds should be sown in rows in 30-40 x 5 cm spacings. After the sprouting you should thin the seedlings, leaving 5 – 8 cm distances between plants. Light, sandy or sandy-clay, moderately moist, and slightly acidic soils work best in carrot cultivation. Koral carrot may be harvested from September to October.
