Royal Chantenay Carrots have a triangular, conical shaped root with broad shoulders and rounded tip. This is a sweet variety of carrot with crisp, orange flesh and tender texture. Hard working farmers have combined modern farming methods with traditional values to revive the Chantenay carrot, a variety that has not been widely available since the 1960s. It’s stubby shape makes it good for shallow soils. Very cold hardy. Start outdoors in very early spring. Germination may be slow during cool seasons, so mark rows for easy identification.
