90 days. Massive heartshaped roots grow 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 U.S. in the late 19th century. Excellent storage type.

Review:

These would be great carrots to grow if you have never grown carrots before. I have tried growing several kinds of carrots over the years and the harvest has always been disappointing because of my heavy soil here. I grew these for the first time last year. These carrots are huge and easy to grow. Early in the season they were not that sweet, but were good for stews and soups. Later in the season they were sweeter and more flavorful and we enjoyed them roasted. I love that for a pot of soup all I needed was one carrot! I will definitely grow these again.

These are my favorite carrots to grow. I have heavy clay soil and they do very well in my garden. The taste is wonderful. But the rust flies love them as well!

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

What are the pros? Gets big

What are the cons? bland

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.
