Scarlet Nantes Carrot Seeds-500 Seeds


Out of stock

This is a variety that has been grown in gardens long before 1885 when they were first described. Nicely shaped cylindrical roots about 17 cm long are blunt-ended, sweet, and crunchy with almost no core. For those looking for a fast crop, Nantes matures relatively early in the summer. Due to its smooth textured skin, Nantes is an easy carrot to clean. Scarlet Nantes has been grown by home gardeners for generations and is our staple “go-to” variety in our own gardens for fresh eating and winter storage.

Sow seeds 5-10 mm deep when soil is at least 8 C. Sow seeds at 5 days intervals over several weeks for fresh eating. Thin to 5 cm apart.

Germination Instructions

Direct sow into well prepared, light well-drained soil that is stone free. Carrots do not like manured soils so beds are best prepared during the previous autumn. Rake in a general-purpose fertilizer 1-2 weeks before sowing. Sow very thinly 10mm deep in drills 30cm apart. Water until germination occurs. Germination takes 10-20 days. When large enough to handle thin to 10cm spacing.

Growing Instructions

Water only to keep the soil moist, excessive water encourages leaf, not root growth. Earth up around growing carrots to prevent green crowns. Carrot fly can be a problem, if so cover with fleece or fine netting.

Cultivation Instructions

Pull a single carrot first to check the size. If soil is dry water before lifting as this will make it easier. Use a fork to lift roots. Damaged roots should be used immediately or discarded. Sound roots can be stored. Cut leaves to 2cm and store in layers of sand, carrots should not touch each other during storage.
