Danvers carrots are very sweet and tender. They have that wonderful "garden fresh" taste. Approximately 7 inches long. Planted about every 2 weeks for a constant supply. Heirloom since the 1870's. Traits of Danvers include its blunt-ended 6-8" roots, smooth texture and fine grained flesh. Ideal for canning and freezing.
Garden Tip: Carrots that have been planted in the summer can be left in the ground until the first frost. Cover with a thick layer of mulch, like hay, straw or leaves to preserve the crop. Much sweeter after a frost, a late carrot harvest will be a fresh treat in the fall. Maturity 70 days.
