Little Finger Carrot Description

  • Appearance: ‘Little Finger’ carrots are small, slender, and typically finger-sized, hence the name.
  • Color: Deep orange color.
  • Taste: Known for their sweet flavor and tender texture.
  • Size: They usually grow about 3-4 inches long, making them ideal for quick cooking and snacking.

Soil and Climate Requirements

  • Soil Type: Well-drained, sandy, or loamy soil is best. Avoid heavy, clay-rich soils.
  • Soil pH: Optimal pH is between 6.0 and 7.0.
  • Climate: Prefers cooler weather but can tolerate a moderate range of temperatures.

Sowing and Transplanting

  • Germination: Typically takes 10-20 days.
  • Seedling Age for Transplanting: Transplant when they are 3-4 weeks old to minimize root disturbance.
  • Handling: Be very gentle to avoid damaging the fragile taproot.
  • Spacing: Transplant seedlings about 2-3 cm apart, with rows spaced 20-30 cm apart.
  • Planting Depth: Plant at the same depth they were growing in their containers.

Watering and Maintenance

  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during early growth and root development.
  • Thinning: If necessary, thin the plants to about 5 cm apart once they’re established to avoid overcrowding.

Pest and Disease Management

  • Common Pests: Watch for carrot rust flies, aphids, and root-knot nematodes.
  • Disease Control: Good soil drainage is essential. Rotate crops to prevent disease buildup.


  • Maturity: ‘Little Finger’ carrots typically mature in about 50-60 days.
  • Harvesting Signs: Harvest when they are the desired size, but they are best when young and tender.
  • Method: Gently loosen the soil and pull the carrots out.

Additional Tips

  • Transplanting carrots is not generally recommended due to the risk of damaging the taproot. Direct sowing is usually more successful.
  • ‘Little Finger’ carrots are ideal for containers and small garden spaces due to their size.

Keep in mind that while these guidelines provide a general framework, local environmental conditions can significantly influence the exact requirements and care. It’s advisable to adjust practices based on your specific climate, soil type, and local agricultural recommendations.
