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.

Review:

I originally got this variety with the spiralizer in mind. I had put germination with carrots in general this year, but out of 4 varieties this one has the highest germination. The first I've I harvested was after about 4-5 months, and was about the size of a large beet. I got over 4 cups of carrot noodles from one single carrot! My other varieties took nearly 10 to make the same amount. It isn't quite as sweet or flavorful as some varieties, but to use the spiralizer I'm not as worried about that. Well definitely grow again

Review:

These get big and they didn't split. Some got bigger than in the picture. Just make sure to give them space and time. I didn't plant in especially great soil and thinned in stages to about 6" and picked all through summer. They don't bolt with the heat. They aren't as flavorful as other carrots though. This seems like a feed carrot.

Review:

Have been growing these since 1995 first from Abundant Life Seeds in Port Townsend. It makes lovely little uniform cubes for the pot and tastes so much better than store bought carrots. Since we move a lot, I have grown them in variable soils in VA, AZ, WA, CA, TX, NY and OR. Oxheart has done well for me and seems adaptable to most locales. It overwinters in some places and keeps in the ground well into January when well covered in mulch. We uncover and pry them from the frozen ground then cook them right away. When the kids started their own gardens, it yielded impressive size carrots that made the kids very happy and confident in the garden. So very happy to see these wonderful carrots offered again, they are the carrots I always recommend whenever i am asked for advice.

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.
