Carrot Early Nantes Seeds
Info: Originating from Nantes in France, Early Nantes matures early and relatively fast. It is suitable as both second early and as a maincrop. The variety produces uniform blunt-ended cylindrical roots, that are virtually coreless with a tender texture, deep orange colour and a sweet flavour. Early Nantes has a good carrot fly resistance.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow from Febuary under cloches or fleece. Can be sown outdoors as late as August. Sow them as thinly as possible, this reduces the amount of thinning necessary. Mix the seeds with a handful of sharp sand and sow the seeds and sand together. Plants should be kept well watered and carrots prefer a sandy, well-drained soil. Too much nitrogen will cause the carrots to grow hairy little roots all up and down the carrot.
