Danvers Carrot Seeds from Hudson Valley Seeds. Heirloom seed & contemporary art, all in one! Artwork by Rebecca Ringquist.
This tried and true American heirloom is one of the best home garden carrots. The Danvers carrot was developed in 1871 in Massachusetts. These carrots are deep orange and often on the short side–about six to eight inches long–though they can get up to about 10" long in deep, loose, rock-free soil. The roots are broad at the top and tapered. This is an excellent storage crop.
