Danvers carrots are medium sized carrots, often called “half size.” They were once a choice carrot for their flavor, especially when young, because mature roots can become fibrous. Danvers were an early orange cultivar, as previous favored selections were white, red, yellow and purple.
“Danvers” is an excellent high-yield carrot that produces a dependably delicious taste. The Danvers 126 Carrot is a bit longer and thinner than its more familiar cousin – the Chantenay carrot. Plant Danvers Carrot seeds in spring for a bountiful summer harvest.
