Carrot Yellowstone Daucus carota var. sativus


Deep color, strong tops.

Yellowstone's 6–8" long roots are deeper in color than most other yellow carrot varieties. Nice, vigorous tops will compete with weeds. Compared to Yellowbunch, it is earlier and shorter with a slightly blunter tip. Pairs well with Purple Haze and White Satin. Nantes x Imperator type. 

Carrots require well-drained soils, with a pH range of 6.0-6.8. Deep, loose, and fertile sandy loams and peat soils with good moisture-holding capacity grow the straightest and smoothest roots.

Sow from early spring to midsummer, 19-25mm (3/4–1") apart, 6-12mm (1/4–1/2") deep, in a 2"-wide band (about 30 seeds/ft.), or single rows 16–24" apart. For minimum soil compaction, use raised beds with 2 or 3 rows 16–24" apart, beds 5–6' on center. Sprinkle the soil surface to keep moist. Do not allow soil to crust before the emergence of seedlings, which takes 1–3 weeks, depending on temperature and moisture. If necessary, thin young seedlings to 3/4–2" apart, depending on root size desired. Keep weed-free by tine weeding and shallow hoeing. To prevent greening, cover exposed crowns.

Carrots may be dug any time after they reach the desired size. Generally the best harvest period lasts about 3 weeks (longer in cool, fall weather), after which time the roots may crack or the taste and appearance may decline. Make a few sowings at 3-week intervals for a continuous supply of tender carrots at their prime.

Plant carrots intended for winter storage about 100 days before expected fall frost. Carrots store best at 32°F (0°C) and 98% relative humidity.
