Viper Carrot is a hybrid variety that was bred to maintain consistent carrot size in high-density plantings. This allows you to produce more carrots in a given space with dense plantings that will still produce large, uniform carrots. Viper is an imperator-type carrot, which means it produces long, slender roots. It has narrow shoulders and a sharp taper to a distinct or pointed end. Carrots are bright orange and average 12-14″ long at full maturity. Viper Carrot has crisp texture and an excellent flavor which makes it great for raw or cooked preparations. It also has incredible top strength for easy harvesting by hand.

Carrots grow best when planted during the cooler times of the year in early spring or fall. Carrots prefer a soil temperature around 75 degrees for optimal germination. They will perform best when direct seeded and are not a good crop to transplant. We recommend seeding carrots in a thick band along the desired row. This will ensure a solid stand of carrots and help to aid in weed control once tops get larger. Carrots are a great crop for double-row planting on drip irrigation. For this strategy, plant two rows 6″ apart, skip about 3′, then plant another two rows 6″ apart. The double row technique allows for easy weed control because the tops shade the area between the double rows. It also allows you to maximize the garden space because you can get two rows of harvest for almost the same amount of space as one row.
