Introduced in 1870, a classic among carrots, Scarlet Nantes has all of that old-time carrot flavor. Bright red-orange flesh with fine grain and almost no core. 6-7” roots have blunt tips and small to medium tops. Sweet and crisp, Scarlet Nantes is a superb fresh-eating carrot. Great for bunching, storing, or as a baby gourmet vegetable. Broadcast seeds over finely prepared soil.  Maintain a daily watering schedule until carrots germinate.  65 days.    

 ½ tsp. seeds

    Nantes Scarlet Carrot

    Posted by Shauna Sproed on Jan 20th 2021

    We live in northern Idaho in a little valley that is hard to grow much of anything in without such things as a greenhouse. That being said I also do not have a green thumb. Last spring we planted these beautiful little carrots from the Heirlooms Evermore Seed Co. in a raised garden bed hoping for something. The little bed is a 4'x4' box & we filled it with several nice little rows of seeds. I was extremely happy when they not only grew very well, but are the nicest & sweetest carrots I am sure I have ever had. They lasted in the ground even after we had our first couple of frosts & when we pulled out more than we could eat once it started snowing, I canned a bunch & they were just as good with flavor & color. Thanks for such a great product! I would give it 10 stars if I could.
