Carrot, Chantenay Sweet Redcore (Daucus carota), packet of 200 seeds, organic
Family: Carrot (Apiaceae)
Chantenay dates back to France in the 1800’s, a 5-inch-long, wide-shouldered and blunt-tipped carrot that does well in rocky or heavy soils. Red-cored, sweet and carroty! Carrots are biennial cultigens that are grown as summer annuals to produce the tender yet crispy root known as the “carrot.” The high coloration indicates concentration of life-giving carotenoids, pigmented compounds high in vitamin A and antioxidants. This variety resists splitting and makes a spicily yummy juice. Prepare a fine seedbed and make furrows with your fingers and sow lightly. Barely cover seed and tamp in, then keep evenly moist until germination. Thin to 2 inches apart and cultivate often until they size up.
