Speaking of "carrot sticks" . . . . My best carrot for not splitting this year was "Candy Sticks." Seed for that variety is no longer available - at least, I canNOT find it!
Usually, I have serious problems with splitting and forking and growing ugly
carrots. I have had these problems with any variety that is in the ground for more than a couple of months. In other words, I can grow baby carrots for summer, fairly well. Royal Chantenay had just as much trouble making it to autumn harvest as most of the others I've tried.
My garden soil can best be described as "gravelly."
But, I think that nematodes may have a hand
in messing up my carrots, too.
Any idea on how I can grow better carrots in 2011??
