French Heirloom - 400+ Seeds
This is an old French heirloom carrot known for the fact that it is nearly coreless. Grows into beautiful 5-10" cylindrical, sweet, carrots. Stores very well. Plant a second crop in July and August for fall harvest and winter storage.
Please note: Carrots like a well-drained, friable soil. Make sure you work the soil well down to 12” and break up any clumps larger than a dime. When carrot roots grow they tend to fork when encountering clumps of soil or pebbles. I have always found the best way to grow carrots is in a raised bed, with a sandy, pulverized soil mix. It’s not necessary, but the carrots will tend to be straighter and more regular in shape.
