Available on backorder

Yellowstone has large, tapered, pale yellow imperator roots that look sensational on the plate! This novel carrot has a wonderful flavour either raw or cooked and makes a great soup carrot. A decidedly sweet root with a canary yellow colour and appreciated just as much raw as when cooked. Long smooth roots hold their colour throughout the cooking process. Packed with vitamins C, E, and K, plus folate and the antioxidant lutein. Yellowstone stores well in the ground for winter harvests and is lovely as a roasted vegetable with parsnips and other winter harvest root crops. Best carrot to sow in August for fall and winter harvests. Roots are sweeter after a few hard touches of frost. Yellowstone grow to 25 cm but their flavour is superior when harvested small!

Sow seeds 5-10 mm deep when soil is at least 8 C. Sow seeds at 5 days intervals over several weeks for fresh eating. Thin to 5 cm apart.

Germination Instructions

Direct sow into well prepared, light well-drained soil that is stone free. Carrots do not like manured soils so beds are best prepared during the previous autumn. Rake in a general-purpose fertilizer 1-2 weeks before sowing. Sow very thinly 10mm deep in drills 30cm apart. Water until germination occurs. Germination takes 10-20 days. When large enough to handle thin to 10cm spacing.

Growing Instructions

Water only to keep the soil moist, excessive water encourages leaf, not root growth. Earth up around growing carrots to prevent green crowns. Carrot fly can be a problem, if so cover with fleece or fine netting.

Cultivation Instructions

Pull a single carrot first to check the size. If soil is dry water before lifting as this will make it easier. Use a fork to lift roots. Damaged roots should be used immediately or discarded. Sound roots can be stored. Cut leaves to 2cm and store in layers of sand, carrots should not touch each other during storage.
