So brittle and delicate, in fact, that it has to be hand dug, as it cannot withstand mechanical harvesting. Enjoy Mokum as a baby carrot or as a full-size 6-8 inch tasty treat. Very rich in vitamin A and high in sugars. Striking orange roots with contrasting thick dark green tops. It's still the finest fresh-eating carrot we know. Nantes type. MA. IR: Ad, Ar, P.

Among the earliest of our spring-sown carrots, the 7-8 inch, bright orange roots have a fine texture and a mild, juicy crunch. Plants have tall, strong tops for easy harvest and produce uniform, smooth, cylindrical carrots with narrow shoulders. MA. IR: Ad, Ar, C, P.

Due to heavy limestone-derived lake-bottom soil I select mostly for Dantes and half-Nantes types which can be harvested whole without breaking, and generally grow without lots of knobs and multiple tap-roots. I select stress tolerant biennial plants to produce the seed crop.
