65-74 days. Half-long type reaching 6-7 inches in length, about 1 ½ inches in diameter. Sweet, brilliant orange, blunt, cylindrical roots are very delicate and fine-grained, containing almost no core. High moisture content make this a natural for juicing; fine for bunching or storage. Originally from France but grown in this country for many decades. A good sort to try on heavier soils.

Review:

So many good things about this carrot. 1) I have clay soil; this carrot still grew straight. 2) They kept in my root cellar until February, when we ran out. 3) I planted these just after last frost and they grew all summer and into the fall. Out of over a hundred carrots, only one (1) bolted! 4) We have terrible slugs and snails that usually eat my carrots. However, they did not eat these beauties!

Review:

Carrots from the garden are just terrific and if you want certain varieties, order early--last year I didn't so I found myself with Danvers 126 and Berlicum 2. Usually I plant Nantes as my main carrot along with some Cosmic Purple or the like. Nantes just delivers a terrific carrot. I ordered early this year and I already have Nantes baby carrots to harvest. The texture is nice and smooth, while not the largest carrot around it packs great flavor . I am glad that Baker Creek brought Nantes on board. The germination rates were notably high after 3 days of pre sprouting in lightweight soil over a heating pad with nearly all seeds showing signs of sprouting. The pre-sprouted seeds were slow to really get going in the December garden but really took off after about 16 days. I think Nantes really delivers in the garden!
