    How to Grow Chantenay Red Cored Carrots

    When to Plant Carrot Seeds

    Start your seeds in late Spring 3-5 weeks before your last frost.

    Where to Plant Carrot Seeds

    Carrots prefer full sun but can tolerate some shade. Seeds will grow best in deep, loose, and well-drained soil. It is best to sow seeds directly into the garden rather than starting indoors and later transplanting.

    How to Plant Carrot Seeds

    Plant your seeds 2 inches apart and ⅛ to ¼ inch deep. When thinning, cut plants down. Don’t pull up the excess carrots or it may damage root systems of neighboring carrots.

    How to Harvest Carrots

    When carrots have reached maturity, simply pull them up by the tops.

    *Carrots do best in sandy, loose soil. If your carrots are too short and ball-like, it means that the soil wasn’t loose enough to push through. Carrots taste better after going through one or more frosts, so don’t worry if it freezes when they are in the ground!
