Carrot microgreens are easy to grow, but take some patience as they are slow-growing.

The carrot variety is Danvers 126, an excellent orange carrot to grow in the garden.

These seeds only grow on soil. Some suggested covering the seeds with a thin layer of soil (bury-method), but we never have problems growing the carrot microgreen seed on the soil surface.

Carrot microgreens can be eaten in the cotyledon stage or wait until the first true leaves form. In the later stage, the lower portion of the stems can become fibrous.

Carrot microgreens are great in salads and garnishes. We like to float them on soups, especially tomato soup. They are also excellent in macaroni and potato salad.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Carrot Microgreen Seed

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 2.3 grams

1010 Tray: 6.1 grams

1020 Tray: 12.3 grams

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 1 teaspoon

1010 Tray: 2.6 teaspoons

1020 Tray: 5.1 teaspoons

All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.

I use these vertical-sided measuring spoons because the seeds are easier to level with the straight sides.

These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of Carrot microgreens.

I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.

Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.

You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point, if nothing else.

Check out the Home Microgreens Seed Density Course if you have a different-size tray.


28.35 grams equals 1 ounce.

Three teaspoons equal 1 Tablespoon
