I love most vegetables but carrots have to be my favourite both for their sweet taste and lovely colour. Carrots are really easy to grow, very good for you and can be used in numerous dishes. To begin with I thought I'd tell you a few facts about the humble carrot. Carrots have been grown for...

Low in Calories, No fat, Good Source Of Vitamin A

Organic Varieties Are More Expensive

When I was young my parents always instilled into me the importance of eating plenty of Fruit and Vegetables and my Dad always used to say "Make sure you eat up all of your Carrots 'Cause they're good for your eyesight." I always remembered this from an early age but never questioned why until I...

I find it hard to believe, in this technological age, and with such a plethora of quality opinions on state of the art products, that 1300 words on carrots will generate any reads at all. But I am what I am. I do what I do. So here goes anyway. Here I was, browsing through the Garden Section as...

Very healthy and high in Vit A, Tasty

Pretty difficult to grow

There are two things that everyone knows about carrots. They are orange and they help prevent night blindness because they are full of vitamin C. Both of these facts are technically incorrect. Carrots were formerly in colours of red, black, yellow, white and more commonly purple. It was only in...

“My PASSIONATE Hatred”

published 07/06/2001

None at all

They taste, smell and are just generally horrible.

I have had a lifetime long hatred for one thing more than any other, something that some people will find funny or stupid and something that others will be able to identify with wholeheartedly. The things I have a passionate hatred for are carrots. Ever since I can remember I have never been able...

Easy to grow, can be grown in raised beds

None

Carrots a definitely not one of my favourite vegetables, but they are very easy to grow. They are grown as annuals (although they are really biennials). They have swollen orange taproots which may be up to 5 cm in diameter at the neck, and up to 20 cm in length. They have feathery green foliage...

slug free

need to water in dry weather

If you long to have fresh crunchy carrots to munch on but you don't have a garden or your soil is unsuitable - no worries . It is perfectly feasable to grow small quantites of the rabbit's favourite food in containers and windowboxes . All you need is a windowbox or container with a depth of at...

They are meant to be easy to grow with little care

Mine look strange every year

People tell me that carrots are supposed to be one of the easiest vegetables to grow but I find they are one of the hardest. I grow many vegetables and fruits up at my allotment but the carrots are always a little bit embarrassing when I compare them to my neighbour’s carrots especially. Carrots...

A writer going by the name of Aspen wrote a very long, a very detailed and, at times a very amusing article on growing carrots. He kindly covered all methods and pitfalls of growing carrots successfully. Except the way i grow em! On my allotment i have a section measuring 15 ft long by 4 ft wide...
