Carrot ‘Oxheart’

Family: Apiaceae

Carrot ‘Oxheart’, or Daucus carota ‘Oxheart’ is an old French carrot cultivar that grows well in both sandy soils and heavier soils.  These stump rooted carrots are are well suited to growing in containers, or in shallow, stony soils.  Although this is a stump rooted carrot, early sown carrots, which are sown in March or April, can reach a large size.

This isn’t my favourite carrot for flavour, but it’s a good choice for container gardeners.
