Scarlet Nantes Carrot

A Favorite for Snacking

  • Nearly coreless 6 in. carrots
  • Early maturing variety
  • Tops for snacking
  • Crisp and sweet flavor
  • Performs in clay soils
Bright orange, fine-grained roots with a crisp, juicy texture and sweet flavor make Scarlet Nantes a favorite carrot for snacking and lunch boxes. The nearly coreless, 6 in. carrots are orange throughout and grow straight and smooth with blunt ends—in just nine weeks. Scarlet Nantes Carrots perform well in clay soil and are also a good carrot for canning, freezing and cooking. For best results, sow carrot seed directly into the garden as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. To conserve garden space and mark the rows, try directly sowing radish seeds with the carrot seed. 65 DAYS.
