Imperator Carrot Seeds
‘Imperator’ carrot seeds produce tapered roots that can grow up to nine inches long, with a sweet and crisp carrot flavor. This garden crop thrives with full sun in zones three to nine, and does best in sandy, well-drained soil. Otherwise, you’ll get crooked, stunted carrots! ‘Imperator’ is a common supermarket variety, because of its flavor, and reliable growing personality.

Harvesting: Do not allow carrots to get larger than normal size (7″ – 10″). Peak harvest period lasts for 3 weeks.
