Olympus Carrot is a hybrid carrot variety that produces uniform harvests of long carrots with excellent sweetness and a crisp texture. This is an imperator-type carrot variety, which means the carrots are long and slender without a strong taper from top to bottom. Olympus Carrots produces 7-9" long carrots that average 1-1.5" in diameter. Carrots are smooth and have a solid orange color throughout the entire carrot. The tops are medium-sized and strong, making it easy to harvest without digging in most soils.

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. Carrots require constant, adequate moisture throughout the germination process. If you are not able to water them frequently, you might consider using a tarp or covering on the soil to keep it moist until Seeds germinate.

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.
