Description – Deservedly well-known, rich, orange/red-fleshed carrot, crisp and sweet. Carrot Supreme Chantenay Red Cored is excellent for a very early and successional sowing. Described as an intermediate, stump-rooted variety.
Sowing – Carrots prefer a deep, rich well drained soil which does not contain fresh manure or compost. Sow seeds spring to mid summer in drills 1cm (½in) deep, spaced 30cm (12in) apart.
Growing – As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, start thinning them out so that they are finally 1cm (4in) apart.
Aftercare – The last thinnings should provide tender roots just large enough to be used. Harvest late summer and autumn.
Harvest – August to November
