Carrot, Oxheart

95% of 100

90 days. Massive heart-shaped roots grow to one pound each. Can be a shy seed producer and seed souces can be scarce, so we are excited 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 U.S. in the late 19th century. Excellent storage type.
