1927 Henry Fields Seed Company Catalog says about Scarlet Nantes Carrot Seeds...
"The roots are bright orange, 5 to 6 inches long and very uniform. They have very small core and are exceptionally tender and sweet. The roots are rather slender, of even diameter and of early maturity. Very desirable for market, especially for bunching, and also splendid for the home garden."
1937 MacFayden Seed Company says about "nantes"...
"Early, Delicate Flavor, Coreless. A splendid home and market garden variety. Tops are small, and the rows can be planted close. Roots 6 to 8 ins. long, bright orange, cylindrical, blunt ended. Flesh reddish orange, crisp, tender and of very delicate flavor. Early maturing and practically coreless."
I have been ordering Carrot seed from Sustainable Seed Company for about 6 years for my commercial Winter carrot crop in Utah. The seed is very reliable and germination percentage is high. I am very happy with the results and I do indeed grow the best carrots in the world, using seed from Sustainable Seed Company.
Great germination, and with proper storage the carrot seed remains viable for at least five years!
