Chantenay Carrot

Chantenay Carrot

Carrot

$ 2.79

(Daucus carota) Heirloom variety dating back to the 1830's produces stocky roots with broad shoulders and deep orange color.  Tops are large and healthy and roots have excellent, sweet flavor-- perfect for juicing.  Chantenay's 2.5" wide, tapered roots tolerate compacted soils better than nantes-type carrots.  70 days to harvest.  Approximately 150 seeds per packet.

CULTURE:  Plant seeds outdoors about 3-5 weeks before the last frost.  Prepare bed by tilling and removing any rocks.  Sow seeds in furrows 1/8" deep with rows 12-18" apart.  Keep soil moist until germination has occurred (10-21 days.)  Hint: To keep soil cool and moist during germination, carrot seed can be interplanted with radishes, which are harvested once the carrot seedlings are well established.  Thin seedlings to one every 3-4".  Successive plantings can be made every 2-3 weeks throughout spring and fall.
