Carrot Nantes is one of the best carrots for winter storage! Carrots are rich in antioxidants and vitamin A. Roots are delicious raw when they are young and great for cooking in full maturity. Approximately 120 days from sowing. Our most popular carrot seed. Dig deep where you want your carrot and add plenty of organic material to the soil in the autumn and as much sand as you can afford; this will help the roots to grow long and straight! Sow Carrot Nantes seeds from March to June 1 cm deep, leaving 30-35cm between the rows. Thin out when seedlings are 10-15cm long leaving 2-3cm between plants, depending on how large you want your root to be. Keep watering in hot summer, water in the evening to avoid attracting carrot fly. Delicious raw when smaller in size, great addition to any salad.
