Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DAUCUS carota 'Scarlet Nantes'
Carrot, Scarlet Nantes Carrot
This French heirloom variety yields cylindrical, blunt-tipped, bright orange carrots that are renowned for their sweet, crisp, nearly coreless flesh. It is also known as 'Early Coreless'. Plants grow from seed to maturity in about 70 days, or they can be harvested earlier for "baby carrots."
The cultivated carrot is a hardy herbaceous biennial of Eurasian and North African origin. It is grown for its crisp, sweet, tasty taproot. If its roots are not harvested, it produces lacy, white, umbrella-shaped flower-heads the following summer.
Carrots are easy to grow if given deep, rich, friable soil and full sun. They keep well after harvest. In temperate areas with warm long summers, carrots may be planted in spring for a summer harvest and again in late summer for a fall harvest. Scarlet Nantes carrots are excellent for fresh eating, freezing, and juicing. They store well, retaining their crispness and sweetness.
