ST VALERY CARROT (60-80 days heirloom)

2

Germ 6-14 days
Heirloom 1885
According to the 1924 James Vicks catalog, “The best and most handsome main crop carrot. Enormously productive, very desirable for private gardens as well as for markets.” This is an improvement on the very old “Long Orange”. 10” roots are sweet, tender, & delicious. Stores well. 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.

Good variety to try

Nice sized carrots, good taste. Not too sweet, but not a bitter taste either. Several of mine split but I attribute that to dry, then very wet weather this year. And I left them in too long. Pick early and water regularly and this variety will make a good carrot
