65-80 days. The Yellow carrot appears to be a classic carrot in its shape but not in its color. Roots are a beautiful golden shade, and they grow to be up to six inches long with tapered ends. They have a very tender texture with a sweet taste. This garden crop can be grown in zones three to nine and in full sun. It requires sandy and rich soil with no rocks or obstacles so that the roots can grow directly down. The Yellow carrot is ready to harvest between sixty five and eighty days.
Yellow carrots grow long and slim, and require soil free of lumps with a sandy texture. The soil should also be moist and have a pH level between six and seven. Sow the seeds directly outdoors in an area of full sun. To have a continual harvest all summer, sow a few rows of seeds every two weeks or so. When spacing the rows, keep four inches between the plants and nine to sixteen inches between rows. Water the roots consistently throughout their growth. After around seventy days, the Yellow carrots will reach their full size and be ready to be pulled out of the soil.
The "world cruise" offered (usually as a once-a-year tour) by cruise ship lines cannot be completed in eighty days as it's designed for sightseeing; it takes a hopelessly indirect route, calls in every port, and stops for a day or two to allow the traveller to tour each city. Certainly no replacement for the historic ocean liner, which was built for speed. By the time the passenger returns home, 120 days or so would have passed and any bets or wagers on the rapidity of this seemingly-mighty vessel would have been lost more than a month ago. Phileas Fogg would not be impressed.
In 1872, an English gentleman Phileas Fogg claims he can circumnavigate the world in eighty days. Met with scepticism, he makes a £20,000 wager (worth about £1.9 million today) with four fellow members of the Reform Club (each contributing £5,000 to the bet) that he can make the journey and arrive back at the club eighty days from exactly 8:45 pm that evening.
