Napoli Hybrid Carrot

Top Performer—Even in Clay Soil

A top performer for taste in our trial garden, this Nantes type has bright orange, cylindrical, 7-8 in. roots with blunt tips and a very sweet flavor. It 's one of the tastiest carrots we 've grown. While Napoli is a great variety to plant in the spring, it also is a favorite to plant in late summer for a fall and winter harvest. When overwintered, it develops an even sweeter flavor. To overwinter carrots in areas where the ground freezes, mulch the carrots with a thick layer of straw. When you want to enjoy sweet, crunchy, homegrown carrots, just remove the mulch layer and dig up some carrots! 58 DAYS.
