Description

Developed in the area of the town of Nantes, France, this classic carrot is famous for flavor and a big crunch. Bright orange flesh is fine grained with almost no core. Roots average 6-7” long with blunt ends and small to medium tops. Shorter roots make the Scarlet Nantes carrot successful in some soils where longer-rooted varieties have trouble developing fully.

When and Where to Plant: Hardy Biennial (producing seed in its second year). Direct seed as soon as soil can be worked through mid-summer. Transplanting is not recommended. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 55º-75ºF. For storage carrots direct sow seeds 3-4 months prior to first frost date. Carrots are best harvested following a frost but before ground freezes.

    Comments about American Meadows Heirloom Organic Scarlet Nantes Carrot Seeds - Packet:

    Since planted the carrots with my lettuce, the lettuce has been doing amazing even in the heat of Southern Cal! the other plants love the carrots. As for the carrots themselves they are not full grown yet so I will have to submit an update after harvest. Their tops look like light colored parsley and they are in containers doing well. I also added some to my tomatoes to see it they help them, I will have to add an update for those also. Can't wait.
