Description

Carrot - Scarlet Nantes - Daucus carota var. sativus

Biennial Heirloom. This well-loved classic is crisp, sweet, and delicious with a high sugar content. A perfect carrot for juicing, snacking, freezing, and storing. The root matures quickly but is also good when harvested as a baby. Its 6"-7" long root is almost cylindrical and blunt-ended. The fine-grained, red-orange flesh is nearly coreless.

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

Soil & Water: Carrots prefer 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. Also good for canning or freezing.
