Dolciva is a relatively new Nantes-type carrot bred by Sativa Seeds, a biodynamic seed company located in Switzerland. It is getting rave reviews in this country for being a uniform, easy-to-grow, great tasting open-pollinated carrot able to compete with the commercial hybrids. It stores well too, maintaining its excellent flavor and crunch for a very long time (even into the next summer!). One of the sweetest, tastiest carrots around. Our seeds were Midwest-grown by EFN.

GROWING TIPS: Carrots can take a long time to germinate, sometimes up to three weeks, and at least 7-10 days. Keep soil wet so the seeds don't dry out. Direct seed in late April, May, June, or maybe sometime in July. Thin to 1 inch apart.
