About Danvers Half Long
75 days. Ideal for clay soil or shallow gardens, this blocky 6" heirloom carrot was developed in 1871. Bright orange with a dense core that keeps it from getting mushy when cooked.
Carrots are best from seed. Give them a good twist when harvesting so the leaves don’t break off in your hand, but once they’re up, cut off the leaves right away. Carrot tops look pretty, but they keep growing and draw moisture and nourishment out of the roots. The leaves are edible and make good pesto.
