Paris Market Carrot History

Paris MarketSmall round carrot from France known to have been grown since the 1800’s. Roots grow up to 2″ in diameter, very early variety. Does well in heavy soils and pots. Cover the shoulders of the carrot to prevent greening.

Growing Paris Market Carrot Seeds

Sow ¼ inch deep, 2 to 3 inches apart in rows 1 foot apart. Keep the soil moist with frequent shallow waterings. For small carrot seeds to germinate, the soil mustn’t form a hard crust on top; cover with a layer of vermiculite or fine compost to prevent a crust from forming. (If you put your finger in the ground, it should be moist, but not wet, to the middle knuckle.) Carrots are sometimes slow to germinate. They may take 2 to 3 weeks to show any sign of life, so don’t panic if your carrots don’t appear right away! Carrots need a location that receives full sunlight, though they can tolerate partial shade, too.  As discussed above, soil must be loose, sandy or loamy, and airy so that carrot roots can easily push down through the soil.

Preserving And Storing Carrots

Store carrots in a perforated plastic bag in the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator. That will keep carrots cold and moist. A refrigerator provides the cold, but will also have dry air. Placing carrots in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator creates a cold and moist environment.

Carrot Nutrition

Carrots are about 10% carbs, consisting of starch, fiber, and simple sugars. They are extremely low in fat and protein. They are an excellent source of vitamin A in the form of beta carotene. They are also a good source of several B vitamins, as well as vitamin K and potassium. Carrots are a great source of many plant compounds, especially carotenoids, such as beta carotene and lutein. Eating carrots is linked to a reduced risk of cancer and heart disease, as well as improved eye health. Additionally, this vegetable may be a valuable component of an effective weight loss diet. While no evidence suggests that organic carrots are more nutritious than conventionally grown ones, organic varieties are less likely to harbor pesticides.
