Twelve carrot (Daucus carota) cultivars were evaluated at two sites in 1997 and 13 carrot cultivars were evaluated at one site in 1998 for their potential use as cut and peel carrots. The cultivars were evaluated for total yield, marketable yield and root characteristics. Yields were quite variable with the highest yielding cultivars having the shortest root length. Of the cultivars tested, `Presto' produced high marketable yields, root diameters and root weights, however, it was very short. `Indiana' produced consistent yields and stand with a good root length. `Bolero', `Presto' and Indiana' were the best performing cultivars for cut and peel production in Prince Edward Island, Canada.
