Plant Information
Developed by French seed specialist Louis de Vilmorin in the 1830s, Chantenay Long carrots have an exquisite flavor, a brilliant color, tender flesh, and grow to an impressive size. Reaching 5-7 inches in length with shoulders as broad as 2.5 inches, they keep their sweet flavor and appealing texture even when at their largest. A direct-sow vegetable with a heavy yield and relatively quick trip to maturity, Chantenay Long carrots can be grown in staggered harvests for a continuous crop all season long. Simply space your plantings about three weeks apart and you'll have carrots coming up all summer. And you'll want plenty of these carrots on hand as their uses in the kitchen are countless. Yes...any way you slice it, dice it, prepare it, or preserve it, the Chantenay Long carrot is vegetable perfection.
