Jaune Obtuse du Doubs Carrot

         
 
14 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
A delicious, lemon-yellow variety introduced in 1946 in the Vilmorin-Andrieux catalog as an improvement in flavor compared to most yellow carrots. It was named after the Doubs River that flows through the Jura Mountains of France and Switzerland. It is a robust, slow-growing carrot with a uniform yellow color, suitable for harvest in the fall. The shape is cylindrical with an obtuse end and is excellent for storage.

What are the pros? good germ, tasty

What are the cons? big core

Review:

I liked this variety a lot for its flavor, and excellent germination But, the core was huge, and made the carrot very woody especially near the crown. So, about 3/4 of the carrot was usable.

Grow under mulch/wood chips
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Tender, beautiful color, tasty

What are the cons? Spindly side roots, forking

Review:

Planted these with some other carrots in the middle of August for a fall harvest; hardly anything sprouted sadly because of the blistering heat, but the jaune obtuse de doubs seeds that were under a thick wood chip/coffee ground mulch near some blueberry plants in the raised bed were able to sprout and therefore I got a couple of mature carrots by winter. They're more tender and sweet than others I've had and the color is really lovely. Will grow again.

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.

What are the pros? Taste, yield, taste... taste..

What are the cons? cant.. stop eating.. omnomnom

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.
