Carrot – Chantenay Royal


68 Days | Royal Chantenay is an improved Chantenay type primarily developed for the canner and freezer but equally suited for the home and market gardener. Roots solid reddish orange, 5″-7″ long, 6 1/2″ wide at shoulder, stump rooted and smooth. Fine grained and tender; sweet delicate flavor. First selling in the US in the 1950s, this kept the best features of the classic Red Cored Chantenay, but some larger and more uniform than the original.You will not be charged shipping costs on products that have ‘free ship’ indicated in their title.

It is a good plan to plant a few radish seeds with the carrot, as carrot starts slowly and the radish marks the rows so they can be cultivated before the carrot comes up. Plant rows same distance apart as beets and thin to about 4 inches apart in the row, or, if from 2″-4″ apart, they need not be thinned. Cover about 1″ deep. Cultivate often and thoroughly. Sowing may be made as early in the spring as the soil can be put in good condition, or up to June 15 to 20.
