Short N Sweet Carrot Seeds

Short N Sweet carrots are exactly that! Super sweet carrots with bright orange skin and flesh. This variety has been produced to grow specifically in poor soil conditions (so heavy clay or hard compacted top layers of soil!), pots, or even small space growing. 

Producing carrots with an average length of 4-5 inches this makes a perfect carrot to juice due to its size and naturally sweet flavour.

Sow direct in the sow or in buckets on a regular basis to ensure a year-round supply. This variety is slowly replacing our long-term favourite Chantenay Red Core!
