These carrots are very popular and for good reason. They have exceptional flavor and a uniformity that makes it a winner. The cylindrical roots average 7" long and their bright red-orange flesh is nearly coreless with a very sweet flavor. They also make exceptional baby carrots and are one of the best carrots for freezing and storage.
Prepare the soil 3 weeks before the last expected spring frost or when the soil temperature reaches 45°. These carrots appreciate deeply worked, loose soil. Build up a raised mound in the row about 8" wide, sow the seeds on it, and cover them with 1/4" loose soil. Keep the soil moist, but do not allow the soil above the seeds to become hard as this may prevent the seeds from germinating. In cooler climates, sow Little Finger carrots every 3-6 weeks for continuous crops. Warmer climates may be restricted to spring and fall crops since carrots cannot tolerate excess heat. When seedlings reach 2" high, gently thin them to 2-4" apart depending on the desired carrot size. The further the spacing, the larger they will grow. When the tops of the carrots emerge, cover them with soil to keep them tender. Begin gathering the carrots when they grow big enough to eat... about 3". They taste best when harvested small.
