Danvers Carrots are a variety of carrots known for their long, tapered shape and bright orange color. They are known for their sweet, crisp, and tender flesh. This variety is certified as USDA Organic.
To grow Danvers Carrots, you will need:
Well-drained, loose soil, with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds in the spring, after the last frost date, or in the fall. Space the seeds about 1/4 inch deep and 1/2 inch apart in rows.
Water the carrots regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Thin the seedlings to about 2 inches apart when they are large enough to handle.
Fertilize the carrots with an organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Harvest the carrots when they are about 1-1.5 inches in diameter, usually about 60-70 days after planting.
