Scarlet Nantes Carrot Seeds

(P) Pkt of 400 seeds
Item #05741-PK-P1


Bright orange color and inconspicuous cores

Days to Maturity: 62

Pushing its deep orange-red shoulders up to the surface days and even weeks sooner than most others, Scarlet 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.

Higher in vitamins A and B than their store-bought counterparts, homegrown carrots are also rich in calcium and phosphorus—and they taste delicious.

Carrots are a cool-weather crop, best sown direct 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. Thin the seedlings 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.

Pkt is 32 oz. (approx. 400 seeds)

Gobs and gobs of large great tasting carrots

One of the highlights of our garden this year. We ate them raw, and cooked with dinner. So good.

Scarlet Nantes are great carrots

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Carrots have to be timed correctly here in the Pacific Northwest; I have had great success with Park's Scarlet Nantes carrots both in both summer and fall harvests. They have been as productive as any other carrot I have grown.
