We love these long, deep yellow roots with tall, vigorous leaves that outcompete weeds better than most carrots. Organic Yellowstone Carrot keeps her color fabulously when cooked and stores well into the New Year for us, as well.
Carrots are not easy to grow, so if you struggle, you are *so* not alone! Hop over to Fruition’s blog, Growing Carrots with Confidence, to boost your skills and reap the rewards of the challenge.

Sowing and seedling care: Sow 2 seeds/inch & keep soil moist to germinate (1-3 weeks). The longest, sweetest carrots thrive in deep, loose & fertile soil with ample moisture. (We plant radishes every 6 inches in the row & weed around the row as they germ.) Keep carrots well weeded as they grow.
