what do you think of this carrot?

Post  Josh on 6/19/2010, 12:07 pm

What do you think about this carrot, it is seed from a 14 inch world record size carrot. Do you think it will get to be 14 inch? Here is a photo of it now, I have it planted in a 14 inch high rise.


Here is a link to some world record carrots world record carrot

Hi Josh! Wow! I'm new at this and haven't grown any carrots. I'd bet that it will be pretty huge! Keep us posted!!

It certainly looks like it is trying to get to 14 inches and MM gives it a better than even chance.

Wow! When did you sow it Josh? I feel very inferior right now so I am hoping the answer is a long time ago

Icemaiden I planted the seeds around the last of March, the regular carrots you can't even see the carrot on them,just some leaves,and I planted them at the same time. I don't know how big it will get,but it will be fun to see. I'll keep everyone posted!

I bet yours will be bigger than 14 inches if you are growing it in Mel's Mix!
Can't wait to hear the results!

The seeds you sent my son have sprouted beautifully! He loves going out there and checking on his carrots and the radishes I planted along with them. I'll let you know how they do.

Ok, I was about to freak OUT, and rip all my carrots out, since the radishes just didn't do anythng. I can't see squat on my carrots, and the greenery isn't that vigorous either. That's ONE AMAZING looking carrot so far. I bet it'd be tastey right now. Can it taste good if it's sooooo big?? LOLOL

Don't despair on the carrots.

I planted some Mokum carrots on May 5th in my community garden and this is what I have so far....
url=http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=135&u=15016226][/url]
The row on the left was planted May 5th and its just starting to show greenery in my Maine community garden. The middle row planted 6/7 and the right row on 6/17 with Napoli seed and not even showing anything yet. I notice the warmer the weather the sooner the germinatation.
In my home SFG they are a bit bigger but I planted on April 24th.
I find that my carrots take quite a bit of time to germinate.
