I pulled a plateful of baby carrots yesterday. These are a mix of Red Core Chantenay, Oxheart (the fat ones) and Cosmic Purple that I planted on April 25. Tiny but tasty!
The farmers at my local Farmers Market are already pulling their second crop of big carrots now. I asked a farmer about them and she said they planted a couple of weeks earlier than me, they have full sun in their fields, and they plant very early varieties. The first variety she says most farmers in New England plant is Mokum (54 days to maturity). Her second planting was Hercules, which she said has enormous tops. The days to maturity of my varieties are: Red Core Chantenay (65), Oxheart (90) and Cosmic Purple (70)
