  • Carrot Hilmar Nantes

    Carrot, Hilmar/Nantaise 2 (Organic)

    $3.80$6.80
    Daucus carota. 60 days.

    This carrot is an excellent open pollinated competitor for the hybrids. Delightful, juicy crunch and sweet mild flavor make it great for fresh eating. Very uniform for an OP, bright orange color and good tip fill makes for attractive carrot bunches at market. Good for spring through autumn production. Not a winter storage type, but they will keep for months in the refrigerator or root cellar. Another slam dunk variety from German seed company Hild.

  • Carrot, Red Core Chantenay

    Carrot, Red Core Chantenay (Organic)

    $3.80$6.80
    Daucus carota. 70 days.

    The ultimate carrot for winter cultivation and storage. Wide shoulders, dense fresh, and solid carrot flavor make it a preferred variety for processing and great for bulk and/or wholesale as the poundage adds up quickly. Grows well in heavy soil, strong tops and wedge shape make for easy harvest. This variety still wins taste tests over all the fancy hybrids out there, but don’t expect the sugary watery-ness of Nantes type carrots (which do have their place, don’t get me wrong); instead the complex carrot flavor and crisp texture will have you wax poetic: “Once upon a toothsome day, I ate a Red Core Chantenay.” Crunch!
