Daucus carota subsp. sativus

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.

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 in. deep and 1/2 in. apart in rows 8 in. apart, or broadcast thinly in beds and cover lightly. Keep seed bed evenly moist as carrots can be slow to germinate, emerging over 10 to 20 days. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away as seedlings catch up quickly. Thin young carrots several times so seedlings are about 2-3 in. apart and have room they need to size up.

Growing Notes: Carrots like well worked soil and need consistent moisture to grow well. If your soil dries out fast, cover seedbed with floating row covers to help retain moisture during the germination period and water right through it. Keep carrots well-watered and thinned. For a late season crop, sow again 3 months before first expected frost.

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.
