Nantes Fancy

Nantes Fancy Main Season Carrot OG

(68 days) Open-pollinated. It’s been a long row to hoe getting this longtime customer favorite back into our catalog. And although other strains claim the name, they fall short, not deserving the fame of this classy Nantes type. Fancy grows uniform cylindrical 7" roots with unusually good interior color, crisp texture and fine flavor. Holds well and is an excellent keeper, too. Outstanding quality for an OP carrot. A 50 lb bag of seed, assuming an average germination of 80%, has the potential to produce more than eleven million carrots! BACK!

Additional Information

Carrots

Daucus carota

⅛ oz packet sows 35 ft; 1 oz, 280 ft. 1 gram packet has more than 600 seeds and sows about 10 ft. Carrots average 18,000 seeds/oz with significant variations among varieties.

Culture: Very hardy. Early carrots can be sown by late April. Can take up to 3 weeks to germinate; keep rows from drying out for faster emergence. Sow carrots for winter storage in mid-late June. Thinning is critical: At 3" high thin to ½" apart, at 6" thin again to 1" apart. Minimal germination temperature 40°, optimal range 60–85°.

Diseases:

  • ALTS: Alternaria Leaf Spot
  • CLS: Cercospora Leaf Spot
  • P: Pythium

ALTS shows up first on the oldest foliage as brown-black spots edged with yellow. Foliage blackens and shrivels as it develops and spreads. Maintaining a good crop rotation is the best preventive.
