Danvers Half Long Carrot

Top Yields for Storage

  • 6-8 in. roots with semi-blunt ends
  • More-than-generous yields
  • Stores well
  • Good choice for clay soil
  • Highly preferred for canning
It's easy to see why generations of gardeners prefer Danvers Half Long Carrots. A high-yielding variety, it performs well in heavy and clay soils. Its blocky-topped, tapered roots chunk up nicely at 6-8 in. long, have attractive red-orange skin and bright orange flesh—and they're nearly coreless. They store well and are crisp and sweet for eating fresh. They're also highly preferred for canning. For best results, harvest Danvers Half Long when they are between finger size and 2 in. in diameter. Carrot seed can be sown directly into the garden as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. Some gardeners sow radish seed with carrots to mark the rows and to conserve garden space. 75 DAYS.
