Planting Instructions for Scarlet Nantes Carrot Seeds
Scarlet Nantes Carrots grow best in well prepared, deeply worked, loose soil. Direct seed Carrots in full sun or part shade (in hot climates), from early spring-summer , ¼ – ½” deep, approx. 4 seeds per inch, in rows 12-16″ apart. Germination occurs in 6-21 days at temperatures of 50-75° F. Thin the plants to 1-3″ apart. To prevent green shoulders you can hill 1-2″ of soil around plants when 7-10 leaves have formed. A good mulch of organic material (such as grass clippings) is very beneficial once carrots are established. Harvest when Heirloom / Open Pollinated carrots have brightened in color, when color has deepened.
