Carrots need a light, soft soil to grow well.
Sandy soil is an ideal ground.
Scorzonera should not be confused with salsify, which has yellow skin and has practically desappeared from our shelves. Scorzonera is less fibrous and is tastier with a gentle, sweet flavour.
We plant our sweet potatoes in May under the west-southern French sun, in a sandy soil that is well-drained and nice and warm. This ensures optimal root development.
