Carrot Yellowstone produce long cyclindrical roots that are yellow in colour with some greening to the root tops. Sweet tasting, with crunchy flesh
Sow March-August, harvest June-October.
Tender carrots pulled straight from the garden and eaten with the tops still attached beat any bought from the supermarket and can get even the most stubborn child to eat his or her veggies.
Before planting, consider where you are going to grow - this will determine the varieties grown. If your soil is light, sandy, and free of stones or if you are growing in raised beds / containers, then varieties with longer roots (Early Nantes, Autumn King, Resistafly) can be grown. But, if the soil has a lot of clay, is shallow or rocky, then carrots with shorter roots (Paris Market Atlas, Chatenay) do better.Carrots prefer a light, sandy soil with a pH between 6.0 to 7.0 and temperatures between 40 to 80 degrees
The first step is preparation of the bed where the carrots seeds will be planted. Prepare the area by mixing in plenty of compost about three weeks prior to planting. Plan to sow a succession of crops, at three-week intervals.
