Considered the most refined purple carrot available, it was bred by Seed Savers Exchange member John Navazio. 90 days. ±24,500 seeds/oz.

Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors 3-4 weeks before last spring frost, or as soon as soil can be worked. Keeping soil moist throughout the germination period is important to success. Misting the planted area daily or covering is recommended. Carrots are slow to germinate and need steady moisture until germination. Sow successively throughout the season for fresh carrots.
