Mokum Carrots Conventional & Pelleted

Mokum Carrots Conventional & Pelleted


56 days. If you appreciate fresh carrots, you must try this one! Crisp, yet very easy to munch. So brittle and delicate, in fact, that it has to be hand dug, as it cannot withstand mechanical harvesting. Enjoy Mokum as a baby carrot or as a full-size 6-8 inch taste treat. Very rich in vitamin A and high in sugars. Striking deep orange roots with contrasting thick dark green tops. It's still the finest fresh-eating carrot we know. Dutch seed.

Daucus carota var. sativus Studies on the nutritional properties of carrots have revealed that they are powerhouses of a wide range of phytonutrient antioxidants. With the vast spectrum of colors and varieties available, the amounts of individual antioxidants vary, yet the overall balance of these potent nutrients contributes to outstanding health benefits regardless of the variety.

CULTURE: The key to good carrot production is soil preparation. When the soil is somewhat dry, spade or till it to a fine texture 12-16 inches deep. Avoid the temptation to work the soil when it's too wet. Cloddy ground will not make smooth straight roots. Work in lots of composted organic matter, as this will help your soil maintain a very loose condition for uniform root development. Avoid fresh manure or excess nitrogen fertilizer which can cause forks, splits, and rough hairy roots. Optimum pH range for carrots is 5.5-7.0. Direct sow March through July. Consider making your last sowing an overwintering variety. Sow the seeds thinly in rows 12-16 inches apart. Cover the seed with vermiculite or sifted compost. This prevents crusting and helps retain moisture. Mix 1/4 teaspoon of seed in a gallon of sand or vermiculite to uniformly sow 30-50 row feet. Maintain an even soil moisture level at all times. Thin carefully to get the most uniformly sized roots. When the plants have 7-10 leaves, hill 1-2 inches of soil around the crowns to prevent green shoulders.
INSECTS: Carrot fly maggots can be controlled by covering the rows with insect barrier fabric at planting.
DISEASE: Carrots are subject to various blights; practicing a 3-year crop rotation and proper sanitation can prevent most problems.
HARVEST: Carrots are best harvested any time their color is bright. This is when their flavor and texture are optimum. Irrigate well prior to harvest to ensure the roots have absorbed their maximum capacity of water. Store at 34°F and 95% relative humidity.
SEED SPECS: Minimum germination standard: 75%. Usual seed life: 3 years.

What is pelleted seed?
Seed that has been coated with a clay-based material to form a larger, round shape. This makes planting by hand or mechanical seeder easier and allows for more controlled sowing of small seeds such as carrots or lettuce. All pelleted seed has a National Organic Program (NOP) approved coating.

Not best for heavy soil

This is my first experience growing Mokum. I had previously had good success with Danvers. The carrots were knobby, misshapen, split rooted--I don't think they are the best choice for heavy soils, even amended with compost.
Mokums Are Fantastic!

Not only easy to grow, fast to grow, delicious tasting, and just the right size, but they also keep well in the refrigerator over winter. I always plant an early and late crop.
Best-tasting carrots I've grown

These are hands-down the best-tasting carrots I've grown (or eaten). Sweet, crunchy, crispy...everything you want in a carrot. My 4-year-old son eats them like he's a woodchipper. I don't know if they store well because we ended up eating them all within hours of harvest.
