Another great vegetable bred biodynamically by Sativa Rheinau in Switzerland. Orange, 6-8" long with blunt ends. Selected for flavor and juicy crunch versatile for summer, fall, and winter harvests. Blunt ended Dolciva is a "Nantes" type carrot, named after the region in France, were popular in the US in the early part of the 20th century until long, tapered carrots dominated the market. Dolciva is an excellent storage carrot because it attains incredible sweetness when stored. You can "store" carrots right in the ground by placing a strawbale on top of them in late fall which prevents the ground from freezing and allowing them to be dug all winter long. Alternatively, store them in the refrigerator or root cellar. 105 days.

Carrots grow best in loose soil. Sow seeds directly outdoors April 15 – July 31, ¼” deep, ½” apart in rows 20” apart. Keep seeds consistently moist (you can cover them with row cover fabric to help keep them moist by shading them). Days to germination: 7-21 days (depending on soil temperature). Carrots need full sun, regular water, and to be kept well weeded. Carrots will be sweeter when grown during cooler weather. Sow seeds every 3 weeks for a continuous supply of carrots.
