Carrot Chantenay Red Cored 3 Supreme
Carrot Chantenay Red Cored 3 – Supreme
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.
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.
As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, start thinning them out so that they are finally 1cm (4in) apart.
The last thinnings should provide tender roots just large enough to be used. Harvest late summer and autumn.
