The Danvers carrot was developed in the late 19th century in
Connecticut, and worked wonderfully interplanted with onions and
worked particularly well in the heavy clay soils because of its
higher fiber content than Nantes types. This flavorful carrot
resists cracks and splits. One packet plants one 12-foot row.
