Description

This popular heirloom variety was said to have developed in France in 1829, but it more likely occurred in the late 19th century.  The tender roots of the Rouge Demi-Longue de Chantenay Carrot are a beautiful deep orange and have an exquisite flavor.  Also called Red-Cored Chantenay for the brilliant scarlet color of its core, it is considered superb for canning, freezing, or eating fresh.

Direct sow seeds in early spring, 3-4 weeks before last frost, and in fall.  Carrots grow best in a loose, sandy loam with consistent moisture and good drainage.  The Chantenay does well in all soil types, even clay.  Approximately 115-120 seeds per packet.
