The Paris Market carrot, also known as Tonda di Parigi or Marché de Paris, is a round heirloom variety from the 19th century. This ancient French root vegetable is actually perfect for contemporary needs: it does well where other carrots would struggle – for example in shallow, clay-rich or rocky soil. Even better, as the carrots grow just 5 cm in diameter, they’re a perfect choice for containers. What these small carrots lack in size, they make up for in flavour – they are deliciously tender, bite-sized, and extra sweet, with very smooth skin.

How to grow

  • Spacing: When sowing 1-3 cm; Depth 0,5 cm. When thinning 10-15 cm
  • Growing: Sunlight  Full sun to partial shade. Soil Well-drained, light and moist soil. Watering Regular, heavy watering. Feeding Light feeder
  • Caring: Expert tip Carrot seeds are small, but it’s wise to plant them as thinly as possible. Once the seedlings have developed their first leaves, thin them out to minimise competition and enable the carrots to grow quickly to harvest size.
  • Pollinators: When allowed to flower, carrots are a huge attraction for bees and butterflies. 
  • Pests: Grow aromatic companion plants to repel carrot fly. 
  • Harvesting: Start pulling up your carrots as soon as they develop a 2–3 cm bright-orange root. Grasp the tops firmly and tug gently – most of the time, the carrots will come out fairly easily.
