Guess how long?

Post  Josh on 7/24/2010, 4:03 pm

I'm going to pull up my big carrot on Monday 7-26-10,it's planted in a 14 inch high rise.

I thought it might be fun if everyone guessed how long it might be,the one who is closest to the length without going over,I'll give a prize of a pack of seeds.

I'm just going to measure the actual carrot. It is a carrot from the world record variety,2 x 4 Giant,it could exceed 14 inches in length acording to the seed package.

Be sure to check and see what numbers have already been posted.

Here is a picture of it today-7-24-10 it is 2 inches across.

My guess is that you'll have an 'L' shaped carrot, 15-3/4" long

Whatever size it is, I'm sure it will be something to be proud of!

My guess: 15"

Have you seen this, Josh? http://www.carrotmuseum.co.uk/record.html

The record for the longest carrot is 19 feet 1.196 inches. I wonder if the guy ate it?

That looks like a nice, big carrot.
I'm guessing 10-1/2".

I am withdrawing my guess of 13" because Chopper chose that length, (sorry I was not paying attention) revising my guess to 11.25"
