Nantes Scarlet Carrot

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.

What are the pros? Delicious/easy to grow/Tender

What are the cons? Splits if watered irregularly

Review:

This is the most reliable, delicious, productive carrot I grow every year. I try others, but have yet to find one as sweet and tender. I'm in Zone 8b or 9a depending on who you believe (I'm inclined to think 8a or 8b myself--were at 3750' elevation) and here in the Mohave Desert we need to water our gardens as rainfall is scant. While I plant these as a Spring crop (and do succession plantings), I always plant them in the Fall (more succession plantings) and let some over-winter to produce seed the following spring. As a rule they are very easy to grow in my 12" deep raised beds (good, rich, composted soil), but if you don't water them regularly, or harvest them soon enough (I'm bad at leaving them in the ground too long) they can split. I think that mostly happens from the annual "monsoon" rains, which cause the same problem with my tomatoes. Still delicious though. Great cooked any way you choose, or eaten raw as a snack or in salads. My best-ever carrot. Highly recommended.

What are the pros? Good flavor, easy to grow

What are the cons? Forks more easily than others

Review:

I'm growing six varieties of carrots this year, and the Nantes Scarlets are tasty, though they seem to be a bit more prone to forking than some of the other varieties. I don't think I've yet pulled a Cosmic Purple, Purple Dragon or Atomic Red that were forked. For comparison's sake, with regard to orange carrots in particular, the St. Valery carrots have been surprisingly straight, with amazing flavor. I have yet to do a side by side taste test between the Nantes Scarlet and St. Valery carrots, but both taste wonderful and are pleasantly sweet. On ease of growing alone I would select the St. Valery carrots as the better carrots. I'm growing all varieties in the same raised bed this year, so location/soil composition isn't a factor. The Nantes Scarlet is certainly a great carrot, but it isn't my favorite carrot, and I may just stick to the St. Valery variety next year.

Review:

Despite the difficulties of growing on an heavy clay, canal irrigated farm these actually grew and were wonderfully sweet. They even impressed my pessimistic father in law.

Review:

This is a nice carrot of good size and excellent flavour. Carrots can be tricky to grow in Houston....there's a sweet spot between not enough daylight in the winter and too much heat in the summer. These hit that sweet spot. I left a few in the ground over the summer of 2015 and despite the usual summer heat, they didn't get too bitter. If they are sown in the fall, they take longer to mature and don't get nice and orange until about February. On the plus side, they keep just fine in the ground over the winter and they taste nice even after a few months of storage. The greens are lovely pureed into a pesto with basil, garlic, and arugula. They also taste good chopped up and fermented in homemade sauerkraut.

The best tasting carrots I've ever had. I couldn't believe I actually grew great tasting carrots! My entire family loved them. Sowed another three rows for the fall/winter harvest.
