90 days. Massive heart-shaped roots to one pound each. Can be a shy seed producer and seed is sometimes scarce, so we are excited to be able to offer this old French variety! Despite their large size, the brilliant orange roots are crisp, sweet and mild. Their blunt shape makes them superior for heavy or shallow soils. Known as “Guerande” in France, it was first introduced in the US in the late 19th century. Excellent storage type.

What are the pros? Plant and harvest

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

Loosely broadcast seeds in 2 rows about 12 inches apart. Did not thin young plants. Picked largest seedlings as season progressed. Good for in garden tasting or using as baby carrots eaten fresh, steamed or stir fried. Picked some that were about 2 inches in diameter at top, tapering to a rounded 1 inch diameter end. Solid throughout, very little damage in my no chemical beds. An occasional root growing horizontally out of the main root. Left three carrots to mature into fall. Picked one the other day. About 5 inches in diameter at the top and roughly 6 inches long. Beauties like this have undoubtably graced stew pots throughout Europe over the years. It is a fine specimen with good taste and no woodiness or pithiness. For Thanksgiving I am going to harvest another of the heavily mulched ones left out in the gardens, slice it crosswise, saut?e, and serve one slice each, drizzled in organic butter with a little brown sugar mixed in. This will take the place of sweet potatoes this year.

Review:

My wife likes to make carrot salad with shredded carrots. Two pounds of carrots = about two of these carrots. Don't plant these seeds too close together. I took newspaper and glued two or three seeds to a small piece of newspaper. I planted the newspaper about 4 inches apart and thinned any seedlings that came up together. They seemed to grow fast, but that may just be that I didn't keep up with the time it took. I had given some of the seeds to a friend, but I haven't asked them how their carrots came out.

What are the pros? easy to grow, good for kids

What are the cons? none

Review:

These were perfect for my kids, they loved the massive size of the root and were happy to eat what they grew. I found the size to be somewhat variable, but small and large roots were tender and sweet. This one is a new staple for us. We will see this year how well they produce seed.

What are the pros? Look cool, different

What are the cons? Poor germination, small

Review:

I grew these for the first time this year as a trial. I like experimenting with different varieties I haven't seen before. I planted these in a raised bed in late February under a cold frame. Germination was probably 50%. I got a few fairly good sized carrots out of it. I thought it was fairly woody with a big core and thick skin. Flavor was good, not very sweet. I won't be trying these again, unfortunately. The flavor wasn't worth the small harvest to me.
