Description: French heirloom from the 1870's, produces 5-7" long, thick carrots, with excellent, sweet flavor. Versatile, good fresh, for storage, in soups, canned or frozen.
Planting Instructions: 70 days. Plant in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked in well-prepared deep, loose soil, free of rocks. Sow seeds in shallow furrows 1/8"-1/4" deep, covering with a thin layer of soil, vermiculite or fine, screened compost in rows 12-18" apart. Keep soil moist to speed germination and prevent soil crusting. Seedlings should emerge in 14-21 days. Thin seedlings to 2-3" apart. For a continued harvest, plant every 2-3 weeks.
