65-80 days. The Snow White carrot seeds produce White roots that can grow up to 8 inches long. This garden crop thrives with full sun in zones three to twelve, and does best in sandy soil. The Lunar White carrot is ready to harvest in sixty days. The variety is sweet and tender.Prepare the soil 3 weeks before the last expected spring frost or when the soil temperature reaches 45 degrees F. These long, slender carrots appreciate deeply worked, loose soil in order to reach their full length. Build up a raised mound in the row, about 8″ wide; sow the seeds on it, and cover them with 1/4″ very loose soil. Keep the soil moist, but do not allow the the area above the seeds to become hard – this may prevent the seeds from germinating. In cooler climates, sow more seeds every 3-6 weeks for a continuous crop. Warmer climates may be restricted to spring and fall crops, since carrots cannot tolerate an excess of heat. For companion planting benefits, plant carrots with aromatic herbs or onions.
