The quick and convenient step-by-step guide to growing your imperator carrots from seeds!
The Imperator Carrot is an AAS Winning carrot variety with wonderful flavor and high-quality production. Imperator Carrots are known for growing uniform, dark-orange, slightly tapered roots that average 8-9" long with a tender, crisp, coreless flesh. These carrots are recommended for deep loose soil, and will be ready to harvest in about 75 days.
How to Grow Imperator Carrot From Seed
# 1 | Prepare your soil 3-weeks before the last expected spring frost or when the soil temperature reaches 45 degrees F.
# 2 | Because Imperator carrots grow long and slender they appreciate deeply worked, loose soil. Deeply worked soil will help your imperator carrots reach their full length. Build up a raised mound in a row about 8" wide; sow your carrot seeds on it, and cover them with 1/4" very loose soil.
# 3 | Keep the soil moist, but do not allow the area above the seeds to become hard - this may prevent your imperator carrot seeds from germinating. In cooler climates, you can sow more imperator carrot seeds every 3-6 weeks for a continuous crop.
#4 | Imperator seedlings should emerge in 10-17 days.
