72 days. A great orange carrot that is very sweet with a nice feel-good-in-the-mouth crunch that’s perfect for salads. Classic “Nantes” shape with a blunted tip which is popular in Europe but underappreciated in the U.S – why do carrots have to be pointy anyways? We love Milan Nantes especially because it holds well through hot weather, where it maintains good texture and doesn’t turn bitter. Uniform size. Grow anytime, spring through fall. MH

Carrots grow best in loose soil. Sow seeds directly outdoors April 15 – July 31, ¼” deep, ½” apart in rows 20” apart. Keep seeds consistently moist (you can cover them with row cover fabric to help keep them moist by shading them). Days to germination: 7-21 days (depending on soil temperature). Carrots need full sun, regular water, and to be kept well weeded. Carrots will be sweeter when grown during cooler weather. Sow seeds every 3 weeks for a continuous supply of carrots.
