Botanical Interests Organic Baby Little Fingers Carrot Seeds
"This gourmet mini-carrot is fun for kids of all ages! Even harvested early, it has a deep orange color, tender core, and sweet flavor. Did you know that grocery store 'baby carrots' are actually cores from regular-sized carrots? Once you try the sweet and crisp flavor of this 3" long "true" baby carrot, it will be hard to go back to the store-bought imitation. Though it tastes great fresh from the garden – "Little Finger" was developed in France for pickling and canning whole. This packet plants one 15 foot row. Little Finger carrots can also be grown in containers. Although carrots "prefer cool soils to begin life and warm soils to finish it", you can grow both a spring and fall crop. Carrots will germinate in soils as cool as 45 degrees, and in the fall they can still be dug from the garden and eaten until the ground freezes.
When to plant outside: RECOMMENDED. First sowing should be 2-4 weeks before average last frost. Successive plantings can be sown every 3 weeks until 60 days before the first fall frost. In warm climates with lows above 25 degrees, they can be grown all winter. When to start inside: Not recommended. Special Sowing & Germination Instructions: Soak seeds for 12 hours before sowing. (Press them dry between paper towels afterwards to reduce clumping.) Plant 4 seeds per inch. When inch tall, thin to 1 plant per every 3 inches. A favorite gardening tip is to alternate carrot seeds and radish seeds. The radishes will mature first. As they are pulled, the carrots then have more growing room and water going towards their roots from the spaces in between.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
