Daucus carota sativus 'Oxheart'
When to Sow:
Ease of Germination:
(Guérande) When this French heirloom was introduced to America in the 1880s its corpulent tapered roots about 6 inches long and 3-4 inches across were imagined to resemble the heart of an ox -- hence it came to be known as "Oxheart". With its huge tonnages of carrots up to a to half a pound in size, the variety was grown mainly for animal feed. Despite their large size, the roots remain crisp, sweet and mild, and they store very well. Excellent as a stewing carrot and for juicing. 90 days.
