Carrot: Uberlandia Reed Franz Improved
(Daucus carota var. sativus)
Carrots are a biennial herb with a swollen taproot that can be up to 25 cm long. This is generally a temperate, or high altitude tropical crop, but the variety ‘Uberlandia’ does well in the lower tropics.
‘Uberlandia Reed-Franz Improved' carrots are similar to 'Uberlandia', but have been further selected by an ECHO volunteer, Reed Franz for bolting in warm weather.
