    of European carrot were evaluated at Solan in Randomized Block Design with 3 replications. Genotype C-15, C-19, C-20, C-21, C-24, C-26 and C-27 were found promising in the study. Mean squares due to genotypes were found highly significant for all the quantitative traitsquantitative traitsSubject Category: Properties
