A Chantenay-type carrot, the Shin Kuroda variety grows to approximately 5" long and has finely textured green foliage.

Shin Kuroda carrot seeds will germinate in soil as low as 40 degrees F and the carrots can tolerate a light frost, so the seeds can be directly sown into the garden 2 to 4 weeks before your last frost date for the earliest harvest. Succession planting is recommended for a continuous harvest throughout the growing season. It can take 1 to 3 weeks before the seeds germinate, depending on soil temperature and moisture levels. The warmer the soil, the faster the seeds will germinate, and the soil should be kept evenly moist.

As a root crop, 5" Shin Kuroda carrots prefer soil that is evenly moist and well-draining. The soil only needs a moderate level of nitrogen, as too much nitrogen may cause forking. To achieve the best-looking carrots, the soil should also be loose and free from stones. Because carrots do not like competition from weeds, they grow very well in raised beds and containers as long as the soil is deep enough. About 12" to 18" deep should be sufficient for the 5" Shin Kuroda carrot.


Carrots are a popular root vegetable that are easy to grow in sandy soil. They are resistant to most pests and diseases, and are a good late season crop that can tolerate frost.


Plan to plant seeds outdoors 3 to 5 weeks before the last spring frost date.

Make sure your soil is free of stones; carrots need deeply tilled soil that they can push through.

Have you ever seen a carrot that has grown “legs” or forked? Fresh manure, or even recently applied rotted manure, can cause carrots to fork and send out little side roots. Don’t use it before you plant your seeds.

Plant seeds 3-4 inches apart in rows. Rows should be at least a foot apart.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
