Carrot

  1. A Description of Carrots

    History: Wild purple, white, yellow and red carrots originated in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. By the 14th C., they had made their way to the gardens of Europe and the Dutch introduced them to Britain in the 15th C. In the 17th C., the current orange form was developed. Cultivation: Easy to grow. Surface sow seed on well-drained and well-worked garden soil in spring and tamp down. Sandy soil and peat-types are best. Thinning the seedlings to 2 - 3" apart is the key to a good carrot crop. It's tedious work but worth it. Companions: bush beans encourage growth; chives and leeks enhance flavour; parsley and sage deter carrot flies.
