Variety Information: Broad-shouldered roots with thick, tapered, blunt ends. Deep orange with a red-orange core. 'Red Cored Chantenay' is a Chantenay type carrot.

Attributes: Good for Heavy Soil

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 45°F, ideally 60°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 10 to 12 weeks before your average first fall frost date. In very warm climates, carrots are grown primarily in fall, winter, and spring.

Harvesting: For best flavor and texture, harvest carrots any time before, and until they reach their optimal size. Peak harvest period lasts about 3 weeks, longer in the fall. Late summer-sown carrots are sweetened after having been kissed by light frost; however, harvest before soil freezes, which may destroy the crop. In USDA zone 5 or warmer, carrots can be left in the ground for storage provided they are heavily mulched; harvest as needed on days the ground is not frozen.

Hardy, Chunky, & Delicious!

5 out of 5 stars Oct 1, 2020
I am in love with this variety of carrot! It did amazing during a hot summer (great heat tolerance) in poor, thick clay soil! It made nice, thick, good sized carrots in quite compact soil. I was amazed by the hardiness and tolerance of this variety of carrot. You get good sized carrots from this variety too which taste absolutely delicious. I love that I can plant this variety in all manner of soils and also plant during the hot season with ease. Highly recommend!!
