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.

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 75F 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.

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

Customer 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.
