What are the pros? Easy to grow, low maintenance
What are the cons? Slow to mature
This past year has been my first time growing carrots ever. I sowed these after the last frost and basically didn't touch them again until harvest. They required nothing special from me. I live in Northern California where it is very hot and drought conditions have been severe. I provided them with ample water...when I remembered. They were slow to mature so I left them in the ground for a long time. The ones I pulled up in late summer were huge, often hilarious shapes. One was as big as a child's head. Even when they are overgrown they are tasty and sweet, not woody in texture like I expected. They are excellent when roasted. I can't wait to expand my carrot patch and grow twice as many next year.
