Carrot "Danvers Half Long" Heirloom Seeds
HISTORY: Carrots date back to Roman times, but our common orange carrot was developed in Holland in the 1600's. The Danvers carrot is a true American heirloom, originated from market gardens in Danvers, MA and introduced in 1871.
HABIT: Sweet and tender bright orange coreless roots yield well in heavy soils. Uniform 6-8" long by 2" roots store well into winter.
CULTURE: Plant seed outdoors as soon as soil can be prepared. Plant in rows 15" apart, spacing seed 1/2" apart in the row. Cover seed with 1/4" of fine soil, well pressed down. Keep moist until seeds sprout. Soak seeds a few hours before planting to aid germination. Can be planted until mid-July. Matures in 75 days.
