Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DAUCUS carota 'Paris Market'
Carrot, Paris Market Heirloom Carrot
The sweet-flavored, golfball-size carrots of this French heirloom variety mature in about 55 days from seed, making it a good choice for areas with short or cool summers.
The cultivated carrot is a hardy herbaceous biennial of Eurasian and North African origin. It is grown for its crisp, sweet, tasty taproot. If its roots are not harvested, it produces lacy, white, umbrella-shaped flower-heads the following summer.
Carrots are easy to grow if given deep, rich, friable soil and full sun. In temperate areas with warm long summers, carrots may be planted in spring for a summer harvest and again in late summer for a fall harvest.
With their small spherical roots, French Market carrots are among the best for growing in containers or in stony soil. They add flavor and novelty to salads, stirfries, and crudité platters.
