Daucus carota

Red Core Chantenay is an Heirloom variety of Carrot that are a deep orange to red colour, growing to around 14cm long.  This variety is suited to most soils, including clay types.

Cultivate soil well before sowing, it needs to be loose, and mulch well.

Sow directly where they are to grow, approx. 5mm deep, cover lightly with sand or very fine soil and water gently. Sow in either Spring or Autumn, full sun. Germination is approx. 10-14 days. 

Preventing the soil from drying out is important for success, covering seeds with shade-cloth or cardboard may help.  Lift cardboard or cloth once seeds have germinated.  Avoid fresh animal manures as they can cause forking.  Maturity approx. 70-75 days.
