Nantes Organic Carrot. Heirloom vegetable. Roots are a rich bright orange and average 15cm (6in) in length and up to 4cm (1.5in) in diameter. Consistently cylindrical, smooth skinned and blunt ended, Nantes is a great tasting, tender but crisp, almost coreless carrot…even when the carrots are harvested late in the season! Nantes typically has a high moisture content which makes it a good choice for juicing. First described in 1885 but no doubt grown well before that.

How to Grow

Carrots will grow well in any open, well cultivated, deep garden soil. As the seed is quite small, mix it with some sand when sowing. Once soil temperature rises above 7.5 C (45 F), sow seed about 7-15mm (1/4-1/2in) deep in rows spaced 45-60cm (18-24in) apart. Sow seed at 5 day intervals over several weeks. Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the 2 week germination period but avoid crusting over the soil as this will greatly reduce the number of seedlings that emerge. Thin the seedlings during the early stages of growth until they are 5cm (2in) apart. Keep the plants evenly watered, weed free and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Harvest any time after the carrot roots develop good colour.
