Cover for Carrot growth and development.

The cultivated carrot is a biennial plant: in the first year, it produces a rosette of leaves and carbon reserves located in the storage root; in the second year, it uses these reserves after vernalization to produce a floral stem. In that year, the plant can reach a height of up to 1.5 m. This...
