Daucus carota


Certified Organic
Sweet and crunchy carrot with broad shoulders and dark-orange core. A popular early heirloom introduced to the U.S from France in the late 1800's. Chantenay carrots, named for the region in France, are stout roots known for their good "carroty" flavor, ability to grow in clay soils and for their strong, vigorous tops which makes them easier to harvest. Red Core Chantenay are 6' long and broad at the top and good for fresh eating, cooking and storage. 65 days.

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.
