Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
The famous Danvers "Half Carrot" is thick and short, making it adaptable even to soils that are not perfect for longer carrots. But with the Danvers, you give up nothing in flavor or nutrition.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location with light porous soil. Cultivate deeply and plant in early spring as soon as soil can be worked, repeating every 2-3 weeks until mid-summer. Fall planting recommended in mild winter areas. Sow seed sparingly, firming soil over row.
Care: Keep soil moist, weed free and apply vegetable food every 4 weeks.
Harvesting: Begin pulling when finger size.

        I started some early and have carrots now. I started some more when monsoons started and they will be ready in the fall. They taste great.
