With its sugary flavor, the Sweet Treat Carrot really does taste sweet. As a vigorous cultivar, it produces sturdy orange carrots up to around 5-6 inches in length. Best sown from late spring onwards, its tasty carrots can be harvested in as little as 10 weeks. As a low-maintenance crop, once planted the Sweet Treat Carrot needs little ongoing care.

Sweet Treat Carrot Plant Care  

For the largest and tastiest carrots, this Sweet Treat cultivar should be grown in full sun. Carrots require a well-prepared, light and fertile soil that is free draining; compacted or stony ground can inhibit their growth. If untended, weeds can smother carrots and should be removed by hand during the growing season. 

Growing Sweet Treat Carrot Plant

Carrots require as much sunlight as possible, about 6 to 8 hours per day to really thrive. When given the right conditions, the Sweet Treat Carrot Plant can produce decent-sized, harvestable carrots in around 70 days. As a sun-loving crop, carrots tend to grow best in a south-facing site outdoors. 

Carrots can grow well in pots or containers and can be a great vegetable to grow even if you don’t have much space. If growing Sweet Treat Carrot in a container, drainage holes must be present and a minimum pot width and depth of 12 inches is advisable.

Watering Sweet Treat Carrot Plant

Carrots are almost drought tolerant once they begin to grow well. Nevertheless, they do need watering during hot and dry spells, especially when grown in a container.

Feeding Sweet Treat Carrot Plant

To encourage maximum yields, carrots can benefit from being fertilized, either during the growing season or when preparing the soil prior to planting. A low-nitrogen fertilizer is considered best to boost root development.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
