Product Description

If the soil in your area is full of too much clay for most carrots, you've got to try Fire Wedge! These carrots are known for growing big and beautiful, even in clay soil. Its big, thick 7-9" roots are a brilliant red-orange with a satisfying crunch. The flavor is rich and sweet, delicious for fresh eating, cooking or juicing, all of which will pack a nutritious punch. Carrots support healthy vision and boost your immune system with vitamin A and plenty of antioxidants. If you haven't picked all the carrots you'd like by the end of the season, no problem! Cover your carrots with about a foot of leaf mulch and you can leave them underground all winter long, and then harvest in spring or throughout the winter months. 80 days to maturity.
