Daucus carota sativus

Item #3017

65 days. Scarlet Nantes is an old favorite for many reasons: sweet flavor, tender, abundant producer and consistent quality. There is no finer garden treat than a homegrown carrot pulled fresh from the earth!

This packet sows four 10-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
10-25 days

Seed Depth:
1/4"

Seed Spacing:
1"

Row Spacing:
6"

Thinning:
When 1" tall,
thin to 1
every 3"


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Successive sowings every 3 weeks until 60 days before first fall frost. In climates with lows above 25°F, grow all winter. In very warm climates, carrots are grown primarily in fall, winter and spring.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Do not allow carrots to get larger than normal size (6"-7" long). Peak harvest period lasts for 3 weeks. Late summer planted carrots are very sweet if harvested after first couple of light fall frosts, but before heavy frost. In climates where temperatures don’t fall below 20°F, with protection, carrots can be left in ground for storage, and harvested as needed.
