Harvesting Baby Tri Color Carrots
Monday, 25 Jun 12 Sunny 23°C / 74°F
I’m a supertaster. What’s that?? I have far more tastebuds than the normal person, which makes flavors much more intense.
With that being said, I prefer my carrots to be very baby carrots. Maybe the size of my pinky finger and a bit smaller, as their flavor is much sweeter and their texture is crisp. I’ve been pulling the occasional carrot to check their progress, and decided to harvest them all today.
I experimented with them as they grew. I had 4 short rows in the container. As they grew, I thinned two rows and left the other two rows alone, just for my own curiosity.
The thinned rows were much bigger, about twice the size of the non thinned rows. Now I know. :) The other result is pictured. Carrot love.
They’re tasty, and I will use them in salads this week.
