Harvesting: For best flavor and texture, harvest Atomic Red carrots at their optimal size of 8”-10” long and 1”-1½” in diameter. Peak harvest period lasts about 3 weeks. Late summer sown carrots are sweetened after having been kissed by light frost, but please harvest before soil freezes, which would destroy the crop. If you live in a climate that doesn’t fall below 20°F, leave carrots in the ground for storage provided they are heavily mulched, and harvest as needed.
