"Eskimo F1" carrot (Daucus carota) belongs to late varieties. It takes 150 - 160 days from sow to harvest. Resistance to carrot anthracnose and low temperatures count among the advantages of this variety. It develops quite long roots that may reach 15 - 18 cm. They take on a nice, regular shape, while their flesh is bright orange, juicy and delicious. Due to its gustatory value "Eskimo F1" carrot is eagerly consumed directly in soups, salads and main courses. It may also be stored long-term.
Seeds of the "Eskimo F1" carrot should be sown in May directly to the soil. Sow in rows 30 - 40 cm apart. Too densely growing seedlings should be thinned, because crammed roots do not develop properly and deform easily. Ripe carrots may be harvested already at the beginning of October and you will have access to fresh vegetables until end of November. Well cultivated, weeded soils would be perfect for carrot cultures. The soil also needs to be fertile, humous and permeable.
