McKenzie Seed – Carrot Nantes Touchon


Nantes Touchon is an extremely high quality carrot. This sweet and juicy variety is nearly coreless with bright orange flesh.



Plant Type: Vegetable

Flavor: Sweet and crunchy

Preparation Ideas: Clean, peel and slice carrots. Bring 3 cm (1″) of salted water to boil in a saucepan. Add the carrot slices. Return to boil, then reduce the heat and cover the pan. Cook until just tender, but not soft. This will take about 10-15 minutes. Drain and eat hot. For extra flavor add salt, pepper and butter.

Days to Germination: 10 to 14 days

Days to Maturity: 60 to 70 days

Planting Depth: 6 mm (1/4″)

Instructions: Sow in early spring in well cultivated soil. Uniform moisture is critical. Seedlings should be thinned to approximately 5 cm (2”) apart for optimal root formation. Sowings of carrot seed can be repeated every 2 weeks until mid-summer.

Suggestions: For best flavor, harvest when roots are not more than 5 cm (2″) in diameter. Companion plants are beans, peas, tomatoes, onions and leeks.
