Heirloom Danvers Half Long Carrot Seeds
Home garden favorite, dependable, heavy yielding. Carrot matures in 75 days. The root is 7"-7 3/4" (18-19 cm.) long, slightly tapered with a blunt end. Color is bright orange. Very sweet with good flavor, fine grained and tender. Non-genetically engineered seeds.
Culture: Carrots do best in sandy, well limed soil. Prepare soil so that it is very loose. This variety prefers deep cultivation. Sow thinly, 1/2" (13 mm.) deep and cover with light soil. Firm soil with back of hoe. Easy to establish in raised beds. Thinning is a must for all root crops. Try snipping the tops of unwanted plants, as this action will not disturb the root of carrots left to mature.
