A carrot for heavy clay soil

Post by 12acrehome on Sat Feb 04, 2012 8:42 am

57 days. This broad-shouldered baby carrot is a favorite of specialty gourmet groceries, and a brilliant solution for gardeners who have clay soils or are limited to container cultivation. At only 4-4 1/2 inches long, this Chantenay type is undaunted by heavy soils that hinder longer-rooted varieties. The deep orange, conical carrots are uniform and delicious, with strong tops for effortless harvesting.

Called Caracus Carrot, available from Territorial seed company
I can't tell if this is a hybrid or an improved heirloom type, but it opens carrot production to alot more people.

Proverbs 28:19  He who works his land will have abundant food...

Genesis 1:29  Then God said,"I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the whole earth, and every tree that has fruit with seed in it..."

This is good to know. We never had much luck growing carrots. They end up short and fat. I figured it was because of so much clay.

He who cultivates his land will have plenty of food,
but from idle pursuits a man has his fill of poverty
Proverbs 28:19[b]
