History: The Lunar White Carrot is a variety with historical roots reaching back to medieval times. Its popularity declined during the 20th century but has seen a resurgence recently, thanks to chefs and gardeners who have come to appreciate its distinctive color and flavor. The name 'Lunar' is aptly given, reflecting the pale, moon-like appearance of the carrot.

Uses: This carrot variety is celebrated for its smooth, creamy white exterior and crisp texture. It possesses a mild and slightly sweet flavor, making it highly versatile in culinary applications. Lunar White Carrots are delicious when eaten raw in salads, providing a crunchy texture. They also adapt well to cooking, becoming tender and fitting perfectly in a range of dishes like roasts, stews, and boiled carrot preparations.

Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: To grow Lunar White Carrots, sow seeds approximately 1/4 inch deep in soil that is free of stones and heavy clumps. This ensures the roots can develop uniformly. Opt for well-drained, sandy soil for the best results. Thinning seedlings to a spacing of 2-3 inches is crucial to allow each carrot sufficient space to grow. These carrots prefer a sunny spot but can tolerate partial shade. Consistent watering, keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged, is key to cultivating flavorful and well-formed carrots. With proper care, gardeners can enjoy a bountiful harvest of these unique, moon-inspired carrots.
