Naval Main Season Carrot - Organic


Naval Main Season Carrot - Organic

Daucus carota
(72 days) F-1 hybrid. Our enduring search for a Bolero-but-better fall carrot finally lead Fedco to the deep-orange prize. Naval never blinked in multiple year stare-downs with Bolero, tasting better both fresh out of the field and after long storage. It sports a refined slightly more slender and tapered Nantes form at 1" thick and 7–8" long, deep orange inside and out, and with healthy tall easily bunch-able tops. Delicious sweet full carrot flavor is paired with winning crunch: we had to hold ourselves back from eating all the samples intended for long-keeping comparison! Named for the town of Naval (pronounced nah-vahl) in the breathtaking Huesca province of Aragon, Spain. Intermediate resistance to ALTS, BR, TLS, PM, LR.

This seed has been coated by the supplier with an organic-certified coating that provides improved protection and ease of sowing.

ALTS shows up first on the oldest foliage as brown-black spots edged with yellow. Foliage blackens and shrivels as it develops and spreads. Maintaining a good crop rotation is the best preventive.
