HEIRLOOM 1871 Roots are 6-8 inches long with a blunt point. Danvers is a good choice for those with heavy soil. Skin is a distinctive reddish orange color. Flavor is excellent and roots store well. This variety originated with market gardeners around Danvers, Mass. 300 seeds PLANTING: Outdoors- Early spring, a few weeks before last frost until mid summer. Sow lightly, 1/4” deep, with soil temperature 50-80 degrees. The cooler the soil the longer it takes for germination, up to 3 weeks. The soil moisture should be maintained regularly until germination. Thin to 1-3” apart. Harvest– Start when carrots reach finger size for baby carrots or when they turn to a bright orange. Late season carrots hold longer and become sweeter in the cooler weather. Tips- Use a row cover helps to maintain moisture for germination. Carrots prefer a loose soil, free of rubble. If your soil is heavy with clay, use the shorter varieties. Keep well weeded and cover any exposed carrot with soil to prevent greening.
