Carrots: Orange Nantes (bunch)


Valley Flora Farm – Langlois

Out of stock


Valley Flora Farm in Langlois grows the fabulously super-sweet “Orange Nantes” carrots using organic farming practices. Nantes is a blunt carrot, suitable for soils that tend to be heavier. (The variety normally found in grocery stores is an Imperator-type, long and tapered, and needs to be grown in a very loose, airy soil, otherwise they fork or kink.)

To store, remove the tops (leave about an inch at the top), then store them in the fridge in a covered container of cold water. (Storing the carrots in the fridge in water will keep them crisp for a long time.) If you’ve left the greens on too long and your carrots have wilted a bit, crisp them back up by removing the tops, cutting a bit off the root end, and placing the carrots upright in a glass of water for a bit.
