Carrot - Baby Chantenay Cascade
This is a high quality, deliciously sweet carrot, which is very reliable and ideal for 'baby' carrots. These sweet, tasty roots resist running to seed and store well. Excellent source of vitamin A and antioxidants.
Sow outdoors thinly from February-July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm between rows. Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established. Harvest from June to November. 'Baby' carrots are best lifted when 5cm long. Mature roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
