Originating from Eastern France in the area of the Doubs River, bordering Switzerland, these carrots date back to 14th Century French cooking guides. These yellow carrots retain their color after cooking and will grow a conical shaped, sweet, 5-8″ long carrot. Flavour improves with cooking and they store well.
Sow seeds 1/4″ deep, 2-3″ apart, in full sun, 3 weeks before last frost or as soon as the ground is workable. Carrots take up to 3 weeks to germinate and the ground must remain moist. Its a good idea to soak the ground very well before sowing the carrot seeds or even laying wood or row cover down to retain moisture while checking underneath every couple of days for germination.
