Carrots can generally be harvested within three months after planting. The best way to determine if a carrot is ready to be picked or not is by examing the tops, which should be a dark and leafy green and approximately 2.5 cm at the crown.
It is usually recommended to thin your carrot crop about 1.5 to 2 months after planting, in order to allow them enough room to make a sizeable root. This thinning process can give you some very tasty tiny carrots to eat well before you are planning to harvest the main crop. It can also be a way to check on the growth progress of your carrots.
You can also eat some of the crops you are thinning as baby carrots are very good. Carrots usually mature in about 2- 3 months, and are very easy to grow. The variety of carrot will also determine how big they will get and the soil will determine how they will grow – hard compacted soil, generally makes for crooked, stubby carrots and loose soil allows the carrots to grow straighter.
