Carrot, Danvers 126 (Daucus carota), packet of 200 seeds, organic

(1 customer review)

$2.45

Family:  Carrot (Apiaceae)

Growers in Danvers, Massachusettes first grew this carrot in the year 1886.  Roots 6 to 8 inches long, dark orange color, well-adapted for clay soils, sweet and tender.  Carrots are biennial cultigens that are grown as summer annuals to produce the tender yet crispy root known as the “carrot.”   The high coloration indicates concentration of life-giving carotenoids, pigmented compounds high in vitamin A and antioxidants.  Prepare a fine seedbed and make furrows with your fingers and sow lightly.  Barely cover seed and tamp in, then keep evenly moist until germination.  Thin to 2 inches apart and cultivate often until they size up.

    Carrot Crop 2020

    Ramona Campbell

    The soil in my garden is rocky and the clay components make for difficult carrot crops. This year, I had time on my hands and took to the carrot patch with a hand spade, digging deep, before putting in your seeds. It was, bar none, the best carrot crop we’ve ever had. Thanks for the great product, as always!

      Question, since the carrot is biennial, what happens if you leave it til the next year? Do the roots just get larger? Do they taste sweeter or more carroty? Just curious.

      In the second year, the root gets woody and inedible and all the energy of the plant goes up to flowers and then seeds.

      We used to leave the carrots in the garden through much of the winter, just dug up what we needed, when I lived in Douglas County. I tried that over here, in Eastern Oregon, but it gets too cold. The carrot freezes, then thaws and rots. Or, there was the year I left them in the garden, using their green tops as a locator device. The deer came by one night, just before a good snowfall, and trimmed them down to the quick. We didn’t find them until we rototilled in the Spring!!!
