About Red Cored Chantenay

70–75 days. Sweet, thick, and stumpy 6” heirloom with a deep red-orange core. An excellent storage carrot, growing sweeter over time. Rarely forks.

Introduced in 1929 by C.C. Morse & Company (later Ferry Morse Seed Company).

About Carrots

Carrots are best from seed. Give them a good twist when harvesting so the leaves don’t break off in your hand, but once they’re up, cut off the leaves right away. Carrot tops look pretty, but they keep growing and draw moisture and nourishment out of the roots. The leaves are edible and make good pesto.
