Organic Heirloom Carrot: Crisp, rich flavor has made the Scarlet Nantes carrot a classic. Only 6-7" long with blunt tips.

Mature Plant Size 8-12" tall
SKU 4CARROTG

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.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
