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