Great-tasting, sweet and crunchy Chantenay carrot with fat, husky, tapering triangular roots that grow just 4 inches long. These plump beauties are fine-fleshed, juicy & bright orange to the core. They are wonderful fresh eating carrots. Because of their shorter length and impressive vigor, Short Stuff carrots are great for areas with heavy soils. Also perfect for planting in container gardens; use pots at least 12-15 inches deep and feed and water regularly for sweet roots.
Seed Count: Approx 1550 / Weight: 1.5 gms

START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In spring once danger of hard frost is past, sow seeds in full sun in finely worked, fertile soil. Sow 1/4 inch deep and 1/2 inch apart in rows 8 inches apart, or broadcast seeds thinly in beds and cover lightly.

Keep seed bed evenly moist as carrots can be slow to germinate, emerging over 10 to 21 days. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away as seedlings catch up quickly. Thin young carrots several times so seedlings are 2 to 3 inches apart and have room to size up.

 

GROWING NOTES

Carrots like well worked soil and need consistent moisture to grow well. If your soil tends to dry out, cover seedbed with floating row covers to help retain moisture during the germination period. Keep carrots well weeded throughout the growing season. Plant again 3 months before first expected fall frost for a late crop.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Let carrots size up to 4 to 5 inches long before pulling for best sweet flavor. Enjoy raw, sliced up as tasty fresh snacks, or sauté, steam, stirfry or braise. Cut in chunks and toss with oil, then roast until tender and sprinkle with fresh herbs, just before serving.
