Seed Tube Vegetables - Carrot Chantenay 2 Red Cored

Daucus carota

 

Carrot Chantenay 2 Red Cored has an exceptionally sweet flavour when grown as a baby carrot. It produces uniform, smooth skinned roots with a small core.

 

The tapered stumps reach 8cm in length and as a shorter variety are good for container planting. They are an early maturing maincrop that can be harvested from July to October.

 

 

  • Sowing Instructions

    Sow thinly, directly into a drill 1.5cm deep. Aim for a seed every 2.5cm to avoid the need for too much thinning and sow in rows 15cm apart. If you do need to thin, do it at night when the carrot-fly is not around. Lightly cover the seed with fine soil and water carefully with a fine hose. Seedlings should appear at about 17 days.

  • Top Tips

    Water at night and keep watered in dry periods. Try not to weed especially during the day as it may attract carrot-fly. Or companion plant them with onions or garlic as carrot-fly don't like the smell or at least they can't smell the carrots
