A delicious, bright, lemon-yellow carrot that comes from France. Mentioned in 1894, it was originally used as a stock carrot for livestock. This big, thick yellow carrot has been winning over chefs and gardeners, for it has a fine, sweet taste that is hard to duplicate in modern carrots.

What are the pros? Grows well.

What are the cons? Pale yellow, no flavor

Review:

I put these in a 55 gallon drum cut in half. I planted Jaune Obtuse du Doubs carrots, danvers half long carrots, and Parisian carrots in the same container and the danvers and parisian carrots were sweet, while the jaune obtuse du doubs were very bland.

What are the pros? Good spicy flavor for cooking

What are the cons? Must thin well, big shoulders

Review:

This carrot is a favorite, we plant 2 rows of this to one of anything else.Needs: good loose deep soil (we use raised beds), THINNING,mulching and plenty of water. With all of this, we get big beefy carrots best suited for cooking and canning. They have a spicy, carroty-green flavor when raw, loose sharpness when cooked.CSA members love seeing them in a bundle with Purple Dragon, Scarlet Nantes and whatever white carrot we can get to grow. When planted in mid-may in central Ohio, expect best results in September-October.They don't get woody when large,you get lots of carrot for your effort.

Review:

I didn't know carrots could get any better. They already taste like stew. I wish I had grown more than just an experimental plot of these this year. like any carrot, water the ground, cover the seeds with fine soil and a piece of wood. Then leave them for 4-5 sunny days and reveal your army. I plant them in a 2x2inch grid. 200sqft will give 2 people carrots for every meal from july to march. Cover your carrots once they get cold. I'm still harvesting in january and should be able to until it gets warm out.

What are the pros? Grew well, tastes great raw

What are the cons? None

Review:

This carrot grew very well, and ended up a lot thicker than those in the image. Above all it's great raw, although the smell (I'd call it perfume) and flavor are unique so it might not be for everyone. When cooked it's just another carrot though.

What are the pros? Easy, good in recipes

What are the cons? inconsistent, not great raw

Review:

First time growing carrots since I left Florida. These were okay. They're very good cooked in recipes as part of mirepoix, but have a very strong parsnippy flavor raw, with some individuals quite bitter. Actually they'd be best used like parsnips and I've made a couple heavy autumn soups with them in that role (since my parsnips didn't grow this year). Roots struggled in my heavy compost, but those that made it to sandy clay loam topsoil were very straight and pretty. They were easy to grow: I sowed them, thinned the seedlings, and then forgot about them until August. Nice foliage, too, the prettiest thing in the garden this year until the seasoning peppers started to ripen.
