Dragons Organic - West Coast Seeds

$4.69

CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Dragons Organic carrot seeds produce roots that are dark red to purple on the outside, with a bright orange interior and vivid yellow core. The flesh is sweet and mildly spicy, and very high in the antioxidant lycopene. Cook these carrots to take full advantage of the nutrition they have to offer. Lycopene is named after Lycopersicum, the genus name for tomatoes. Most Lycopene is consumed from tomatoes, and has been associated with prostate health for men. Plant Dragons carrots in deeply dug, loose soil and be sure to keep the surface of the soil damp during germination.

Matures in 60 to 90 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)

    • High in antioxidants
    • Certified Organic

The trick is to keep the top-most layer of soil damp during the relatively long germination period. Water deeply prior to planting. Direct sow the tiny seeds 5mm (¼”) deep, 4 seeds per 2cm (1″), and firm soil lightly after seeding. Make sure the seeds are only just buried. Water the area with the gentlest stream possible, and keep it constantly moist until the seeds sprout.
