Description

Heirloom Vegetable. This classic Danvers type carrot is broad through most of its length before tapering to a pointed tip. Very sweet, juicy, crisp, buttery yellow roots average 15-20 cm (6-8″) in length. The pigment xanthophyll, which gives these carrots their colour, helps support good eye health.

How to Grow

850 seed/gram Carrots will grow well in any open, well cultivated, deep garden soil. As the seed is quite small, mix it with some sand when sowing. Once soil temperature rises above 7.5 C (45 F), sow seed about 7-15 mm (1/4-1/2″) deep in rows spaced 45-60 cm (18- 24″) apart. Sow seed at 5 day intervals over several weeks. Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the 3 week germination period. Thin the seedlings during the early stages of growth until they are 5 cm (2″) apart. Keep the plants evenly watered, weed free and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Harvest any time after the carrot roots develop good colour.
