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.

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.
