Description

Carrot - Danvers - Daucus carota var. sativus

Biennial Heirloom. Danvers is a vigorous, red-orange carrot, 7"-8" long, with slightly tapered, broad shoulders. It is heat tolerant and performs consistently in many types of soils. Danvers' strong top makes it easy to pull from the ground. A good keeper.

Did You Know? Carrots are extremely high in vitamin A. They're also a good source of vitamin C and potassium.

Soil & Water: Carrots prefer light, deeply tilled soils with plenty of added organic matter, good drainage, a pH range of 6.0-6.6, and regular water. Apply a mulch layer once established to keep roots cool.

Planting & Growing: Seed directly into 75°F soil for quick germination. Mix the small seeds with dry coffee grounds or sand to improve seed distribution. Over planting requires thinning to provide sufficient growing room.

Harvesting & Storage: If necessary, loosen soil to pull carrots without breaking off tops. Trim off foliage to extend storage time. Layer roots in a container with damp medium and store in cool, moist conditions. Also good for canning or freezing.
