Carrot - Danvers Half Long
A favorite main crop carrot with root 6-7 inches long and 1 3/4 inches thick. Fine textured, tender bright orange flesh is rich in flavor and very sweet either cooked, raw or frozen. A heavy yielder and good keeper.
Some gardeners like to soak the seed a few hours before planting to aid in germination. Make successive sowing up to mid-July for full sized roots for winter storage. Plant Radish seeds in the row with Carrots. The Radishes will sprout quickly to mark the row, They will mature and can be harvested before the Carrots get too large.
