Daucus carota 'Cantanay Red Cored 2'

Plant details

Carrots are easy to grow and taste much sweeter than those bought commercially. They are an excellent source of Vitamin A and antioxidants. For best results grow in free-draining soil, such as sandy soil, which warms up quickly in spring, aiding germination. Prepare soil well to remove stones, otherwise the roots may fork, and cover seedlings with horticultural fleece to prevent carrot root fly from laying eggs in the crop.

'Chantenay Red Cored 2' is an early maincrop variety which produces small cored, stump-ended carrots with an intense orange colour and a fantastic flavour. They store well into winter.
