Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DAUCUS carota 'Danvers 126'
Carrot, Danvers 126 Carrot
The sweet, medium-sized, deep orange carrots of 'Danver's 126' are vigorous, heat-tolerant and easy to grow - even in clay or heavy loam soils. They are prized for their smooth skin, high yields and can be harvested after 75 days of growth after seed germination.
The cultivated carrot is a hardy, herbaceous, biennial of European and Asian origin. It is grown for its crisp, sweet, tasty tap roots. Often called Daucus carota ssp. sativus, it is a biennial but rarely gets the chance to flower because its roots are harvested in the first season. If allowed to flower, it has large, pretty, lacy, white umbrella-shaped blooms that appear in summer.
Carrots grow best if cultivated in deep, rich, friable loamy soil and full sun. They are easy to grow, if given the right growing conditions, and can be stored for long periods of time. In temperate areas with warm, moderately long summers carrots can be planted in spring for a summer harvest and then again in late summer for a fall harvest.
