In 1850, the Vilmorin Seed Company of France developed the Scarlet Nantes carrot. This tender, crisp,sweet, nearly coreless, bright orange red carrot is great for freezing, and harvesting young as baby carrots. Growing to 5-7″ long with blunt tips, these carrots are so tender and sweet, they are phenomenal for juicing. Grows well in northern climates and will yield better than most.

Growing Directions

Sow seeds 1/4″ deep, 2-3″ apart, in full sun, 3 weeks before last frost or as soon as the ground is workable. Carrots take up to 3 weeks to germinate and the ground must remain moist. Its a good idea to soak the ground very well before sowing the carrot seeds or even laying wood or row cover down to retain moisture while checking underneath every couple of days for germination.
