Description:
This early, "French Forcing" type carrot is easy to grow. Introduced to the US around 1861, it was widely cultivated by the turn of the century (this was your Great Grandparents' carrot). Round-shaped, root length is 1¼ - 1¾". Due to its short root, Parisian grows well in clay and rocky soils. Smaller top than other carrot varieties (only 10" tall), Parisian can be squeezed easily into any garden (see Growing Instructions tab). Crisp, tender roots are pleasantly sweet. Perfect for lunch boxes. Help us bring back this awesome carrot!

Growing Instructions:
Because these carrots grow much shorter than most other varieties, they are more tolerant to different types of soil. Lumps and rocks in the soil are less of an issue for this type of carrot, but try to use soil that has a pH level of approximately 7.0 pH. Keep the soil moist throughout growth, and choose an area with full sun. Sow each seed with 1-2 inches between the plants and 12-18 inches between rows. These carrots are ready for harvest sooner than most other varieties due to their small size. After 55 days, the Parisian carrots are ready to be harvested.
