Description

At last, Nantes goes organic

Days to Maturity: 62 from direct sow

Pushing its deep orange shoulders up to the surface days and even weeks sooner than most others, Nantes is an exceptionally sweet variety just made for slicing. The 6- to 7-inch roots are firm, straight, and not tapered, with inconspicuous cores and plenty of tender, crisp, and ultra-sweet flavor in every bite. This is the classic name in carrots, and now it's available from organic seed.

Higher in vitamins A and B than their store-bought counterparts, homegrown carrots are also rich in calcium and phosphorus—and they taste delicious. And with this certified organic variety, you know you're growing nothing but nature's goodness.

Carrots are a cool-weather crop, best direct sown as soon as the soil is workable in spring, or in late summer for fall harvest. Heavy soils are a problem for root development, so prepare the soil thoroughly before planting or, if you are in a clay soil area, consider growing in raised beds or even containers. Carrots also need moisture to keep from splitting. With these needs met, they are virtually trouble free.

When the seedlings come up and are a few inches high, thin them to 3 inches apart. Harvest the roots as soon as you want, but certainly when they are less than 2 inches across; the smaller the tastier. You will love Nantes organic.
