Edible Qualities

Yaya Carrot is an annual vegetable plant that is typically grown for its edible qualities. It produces orange long roots with orange flesh which are harvested from mid summer to mid fall. The roots have a sweet taste and a crunchy texture.

The roots are most often used in the following ways:

  • Fresh Eating
  • Cooking
  • Baking
  • Pickling
  • Freezing

Planting & Growing

Yaya Carrot will grow to be about 10 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 inches. When planted in rows, individual plants should be spaced approximately 3 inches apart. This vegetable plant is an annual, which means that it will grow for one season in your garden and then die after producing a crop. Because of its relatively short time to maturity, it lends itself to a series of successive plantings each staggered by a week or two; this will prolong the effective harvest period.

This plant is typically grown in a designated vegetable garden. It should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
