Botanical Interests Scarlet Nantes Carrot Seeds
Scarlet Nantes is an old favorite for many reasons. It has a reputation for sweet flavor, crisp texture, tenderness, abundant production, and consistent quality. The bright orange-red roots are cylindrical in shape and 6"-7" long. There is no finer garden treat than a homegrown carrot! This packet plants one 12-foot row. Although carrots "prefer cool soils to begin life and warm soils to finish it", you can grow both a spring and fall crop. Carrots will germinate in soils as cool as 45 degrees, and in the fall they can still be dug from the garden and eaten until the ground freezes.
When to plant outside: RECOMMENDED. First sowing should be 2-4 weeks before average last frost. Successive plantings can be sown every 3 weeks until 65 days before the first fall frost. In warm climates with lows above 25 degrees, they can be grown all winter.
When to start inside: Not recommended.
Daucus - carota

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
