Mediterranean Carrot Seeds

Mixed Mediterranean carrots – Daucus carota.

The carrot is considered to be one of the holy trinity of Italian cooking (onion, celery and carrot).

Jaune de Doubs is a yellow carrot once used to feed livestock, but now prized for its flavour. The orange carrot was bred in the 17th century by the Dutch to celebrate their King of Orange, while purple carrots have existed in Italy and Spain since the 12th century. They are still cultivated today in Puglia, Italy.

Try Mediterranean carrots roasted with Moroccan spices or with honey. Young ones, pulled when thinning rows, are delicious in salads or used as sticks in dips.

Sowing

Annual: Sow direct in well-dug and raked ground, 1cm deep, from February to June.

Be careful not to crush the foliage when weeding, as the smell will attract carrot root fly. Some plant rows of onions or garlic each side of the carrots to keep off the root fly, which tunnels through the roots. Alternatively cover with light garden fleece once they are growing.

In Thailand, we have been working with local organisation FORRU on reforestation projects to restore large areas of degraded tropical forest. Over 65,000 trees have been planted and community training and learning has been shared across the country building up a network of local knowledge on how to protect rainforests and conserve natural resources..
