Chantenay Red Cored Carrot
Daucus carota subsp. sativus
Here is the Chantenay Red Cored Carrot, Daucus carota subsp. sativus. It was Introduced in France in the late 1800's and was introduced into the USA in 1929 by Ferry Morse. They are a broad shouldered variety ranging in size from 3 to 5.5 inches long with tops about 1.25 inches across. They don't actually have a red core however we have had a few that had a dark orange-red core! They are a lightly sweet and crunchy and can be picked before they are full colored. We find them great for fresh eating and great in soups and stews. Great tasting, tender and crisp, good for all levels of gardener experience. Open pollinated 60 to 75 days.
