The numerous carrot varieties are best divided according to their growth times. Early varieties are particularly suitable for bundling and immediate consumption. Medium-early varieties can be eaten immediately but can also be stored for a few months. Late varieties are mainly grown by commercial growers for processing.

Avoid growing on soil freshly treated with organic fertilizer because of carrot flies. Carrots prefer deep, humus-rich and well-drained soil. Since they germinate slowly, the plots should be weeded well before sowing. Make a seed furrow 2-3cm deep and plant approx. 2 seeds per cm. After a few weeks, the seedlings can be thinned out to about one every 2-3 cm.
