Planting is from March to August. We have to choose a free of stones and loose soil, in a sunny and deep place. We must sow directly in the final place, we do rows on the soil spaced about 15 cm, then we scatter the seeds on the rows and cover lightly with soil. We must water at night and increase watering during periods of drought. We have to keep the soil moist. If we plant each three weeks we will have carrots at our table without interruption.

The harvest is from June to October or November. Is better do it in the evening. Simply, we pull the leaves to pluck from the soil. We can harvest when we need the carrot, Carrot Rothild holds the frost so we can extend their harvest until November. If we have a lot, we can store them in sandboxes avoiding touching each other and keeping them in a cool and dry place. This variety holds very good the storage for months, the first five months even increase its levels of vitamin A, and still in perfect condition will hold two months more. It is also suitable for freezing.
