This carrot was developed in the late 1800s in the town for which is it named: Danvers, Massachusetts. A leading variety for home and market gardeners alike, this variety stores well and produces high yields even in clay and heavy soils. Its bright-orange flesh is nearly coreless, sweet, and tender. The uniform roots grow up to 8" long.
You can sow carrot seeds as soon as the soil in your garden can be worked in the spring (about 3-4 weeks before the last frost). Seeds need consistent moisture until they emerge (considering covering with a wooden board/ burlap/ row cover until germination. Germination on carrot seed is slow and uneven. Sow the seeds less than an inch apart, 1/4" depth and thin them to 2-4 inches after they grow to a few inches. Rows 6-8" apart. Keeping soil moist throughout the germination period is important to success. Misting the planted area daily and covering is recommended.
