Description

Carrot - Chantenay - Daucus carota var. sativus

Biennial Heirloom. Chantenay all-purpose carrots' great flavor is a well-kept secret. The deep red-orange, 5"-6" roots are crisp and tender with wide-topped shoulders and a conical shape. Good choice for canning, juicing, freezing, and root cellaring.

Did You Know? Carrots are extremely high in vitamin A. They're also a good source of vitamin C and potassium.

Soil & Water: Chantenay grows well in heavy or shallow soils, retaining its shape well, but will also grow in light, deeply tilled soils with plenty of added organic matter, good drainage, a pH range of 6.0-6.6, and regular water. Apply a mulch layer once established to keep roots cool.

Planting & Growing: Seed directly into 75°F soil for quick germination. Mix the small seeds with dry coffee grounds or sand to improve seed distribution. Over planting requires thinning to provide sufficient growing room.

Harvesting & Storage: You may need to loosen soil to pull carrots without breaking off tops. Trim off foliage to extend storage time. Layer roots in a container with damp medium and store in cool, moist conditions.

Reviews

Very Flavorful

I've never been a big fan of snacking on carrots because the ones you buy in the store are always so bland, but these are delicious. We've grown them every year for the last 3 years. Use lots of sand to keep them from growing in funny shapes, and don't use too much organic fertilizer or you'll just get a bunch of green tops with underdeveloped carrots. Other than that, very easy to grow and really yummy.
