CARROT, SCARLET NANTES
SCARLET NANTES CARROT
These stecklings (last years carrots) were grown at the Missoula Grain and Vegetable Farm during the 2019 growing season, the same ones many of ya’ll may have enjoyed. I stored them in their “Barn” over the winter, then I transplanted these stecklings in my seed growing plot on their farm during early May 2020. From early September through October I harvested the seeds, and now the farm will take some of these seeds to re-sow for their CSA members and other customers to enjoy. Please enjoy these sugary, tasty, orange, crunchy, mouth-watering, long-term storage, vitamin packed carrots.
POLLINATORS LOVE THEIR FLOWERS.
Direct sow in early Spring for summer carrots until mid-summer for fall/storage carrots. Keep seeds moist until they sprout...may take 21 days. Thin to 1” apart in rows and 8”-12” between rows. They love barefoot children aspiring to be a gardener when they “grow up” :)
GERM RATE 91% SEED COUNT ~ 400
There is some chaff with these seeds...its super hard to get it perfectly clean.
