Chantenay 2 Red Cored Carrot Seeds

[84 days] The Red Cored Chantenay carrot is a popular, all-purpose carrot with a very sweet flavour and crisp texture. The tapered roots reach to about 8cm in length and end in a stump. The shoulders are broad, making these carrots very satisfying to pull. The short size makes this carrot a great choice for container planting, but it will grow equally well in the garden or allotment. Unlike most carrot varieties, the Chantenay will even do well in clayish soils.

This variety matures early in the season and is generally harvested from July through October.

Common Questions

Are these carrots good for poor soil? Yes! Chantenay carrots are short-growing carrots and do not require deep uncompacted soil. For this reason, they are perfect for growing in clay soils or pots.

Will Chantenay Red Cored carrots germinate in cooler weather? Yes! Carrots tend to prefer cooler weather to thrive, they germinate best when the soil is at 10°C. Your seeds should begin to sprout approximately 7 days after sowing.

Can you grow carrots all year? Yes. By sowing regularly into buckets you can be ensured of a carrot crop all year. Growing directly into large buckets or containers allows you to move them inside the greenhouse during colder months and protect them from frost.
