Research and Tuition

Uses

  • Cooking
  • Consuming grilled carrots provides +2 to perception

Yield

  • seems to be growing in carrot wave again, was getting yield of 12 carrots around 4:50 PM just south of the UBody in Stillwater, slowly dropping. At 1AM it was rising with 18 carrots around 1.30, dropped back to 4 at 2PM - Confirmed that Carrots do not repeat growth waves every Egyptian day.
  • "Pumping growth" (i.e. watering until big, letting shrink back down, and watering back to big before harvesting) seems to have a negative effect. Next to river in ShabAb I'm getting 7 carrots per watering if I go straight through until harvest. Letting it shrink 1 size, then watering until harvest still yields 7. Letting shrink twice then watering until harvest only yields 2 instead of 7. Shrinking 3 or 4 times then pumping only yields 1 carrot. Haven't tried multiple shrink/pump cycles on the same plant.
  • it is possible to get a normal carrot growth animation but harvest zero carrots - its some part of the carrot cycle. Moving to another location did not change the zero harvest. --shuofthefieryheat 22:08, 16 January 2009 (EST)
  • I've gotten a report of a 17 carrot yield between 12:00 and 12:40 Egypt Time
  • At the same location (FB4905, -1905)__[12:10-12:40] gradual increase from 9 to 12/seed. Peaks at 12/seed. [12:40-12:50] 11/seed. [12:50-1:10p] gradual decrease from 11 to 8/seed. However, I have also gotten 16/seed by FB CS.
  • On Peret III - 8 at 9:58 pm Egypt time, at my Compound (739, -7915 lower QR) I started planting and got a return of 3 carrots. I kept planting hoping the wave was heading my way. The wave peaked at 14 carrots at 10:35 then began to drop off again. It dropped to 8, then began to increase. At 12:31 AM, for 15 Egypt minutes it peaked at 16 carrots. It dropped back down to 5 as the wave moved on, then began to increase again! When I had to abandon my planting, it had got back up to 11. --Juspar 19 Feb 2009
