Crispy French Carrots

These well-bred new Nantes carrots have a slender, 6 to 7 inch long, perfectly cylindrical shape with blunt tips. Boleros are a beautiful deep orange with consistently sweet flavor and juicy brittle texture, perfect to harvest either full sized or as slim elegant baby carrots. They mature quickly with smooth skins that need little peeling and fine textured crispy flesh. Bolero is a fine French delicacy to savor fresh from your garden.

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 rows8 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 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 in. apart and have room 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. 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 color up to deep orange before harvesting for best sweet flavor. Eat fresh, juice, or lightly steam. Set off their flavor with fresh lemon or orange juice and a sprinkling of minced herbs. Or glaze with a little honey and ginger of cinnamon. Fresh mint leaves are a tasty, pretty garnish for fresh garden carrots.
