Yaya, Pelleted Main Season Carrot OG(58 days) F-1 hybrid. Nantes type. Tom Vigue says “unbeatable as a summer carrot.” Not yet a grandmother in the carrot world, relatively new Yaya is in the same quality class with Mokum and old favorite Nelson, a standout three straight years in our observation plots. In his stale-bed method carrot intensification project in 2012 in Monroe, Maine, grower Mark Fulford achieved a yield of 254 lb from a 150 sq ft 4-row carrot bed using Yaya, more than 80% #1s. That averages out to 73,000 lb/acre, more than double the average carrot yield according to the USDA. Averaging 6", Yaya is slightly shorter-rooted than Nantes Fancy but more flavorful. Strong tops, good for bunching. Crisp clean sweet carrot flavor. Can be used for baby or full-sized carrots. Showed some tolerance to ALTS in our 2009 MA plot. ④
We are pleased to offer pelleted carrot seed. Pellets can save time-consuming thinning for both home gardeners and commercial operations. They can be sown by hand or with precision seeders. Our carrot pellets are size 11.5. Pellets have one major drawback: the process shortens the viable life of the seed. Buy only as much pelleted seed as you need for this season. It will not hold over well. Our pellets use an inert clay coating that is in compliance with NOP standards. Keep pellets cool and dry prior to planting and maintain steady soil moisture during the germination period.
