Description

These well-bred new Nantes carrots have a slender, 6: - 7" long, perfectly cylindrical shape, with blunt tips. Boleros are a beautiful deep orange with consistently sweet flavor and juicy brittle texture, perfect to harvest either full-sized or as slim elegant baby carrots. They mature quickly with smooth skins that need little peeling and fine textured crispy flesh. Bolero is a fine French delicacy to savor fresh from your garden.

Approx. Seeds per Pack: 1500 Seeds

Planting & Care

Planting:
Start Seeds Outdoors
In Spring, once the danger of hard frost has passed, sow seeds in full sun in finely-worked, fertile soil. Sow 1/4" deep and 1/2" apart in rows 8" apart, or broadcast thinly in beds and cover lightly. Keep seedbed evenly moist as carrots can be slow to germinate, emerging over 10 - 21 days. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away as seedlings catch up quickly. Thin young carrots several times so seedlings are 2" - 3" apart and have room to size up.

Growing: Carrots like well-worked soil and need consistent moisture to grow well. If your soil tends to crust, cover seedbed with floating row cover to help retain moisture during the germination period. Keep carrots well weeded throughout the growing season. Plant again 3 months before the first expected fall frost for a late crop.

Harvest & Use: Let carrots color up to deep orange before harvesting for best sweet flavor. Eat fresh, juice, or lightly steam. Set off their flavor with fresh lemon or orange juice and a sprinkling of minced herbs, or glaze with a little honey and ginger or cinnamon. Fresh mint leaves are a tasty, pretty garnish for fresh garden carrots.
