Danvers #126 Carrots have strong tops on their 8" mature roots and this is what makes Danvers Carrots easy to pull from the ground.
Carrots have a firm and crisp flesh with excellent flavor. Very productive and a fine keeper, this carrot variety is also high in vitamin A.
Sow Easy seeds are pelleted with an all-natural coating made from a mix of clay, perlite, and FDA-approved food coloring. This coating adds some bulk to small seeds and stands out in the soil, making direct sowing and accurate spacing easier than ever. However, the coating does add a few days to the germination time when compared to uncoated seed.
