Jaune Obtuse du Doubs Carrot

         
 
16 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? Beautiful color, full flavor

What are the cons? germination trouble

Review:

Once established, provided high yields of beautifully golden, flavorful roots. Not as sweet and juicy as more modern varieties. Excellent cooked - nice texture and even brighter golden color than when raw. Stored well in fridge and root cellar. I have had no problem with woody core or side rooting, as others mentioned. As with any carrot, can be tricky to germinate and establish seedlings. Last year, I let my germinating seeds dry out like a rookie and didn't get a harvest at all, but definitely trying again this year.

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

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.
