This carrot variety is called 'Scarlet Nantes.' It is a long, fine-grained carrot that is nearly coreless. It doesn't get woody either.

Harvesting My Favorite Root Vegetable-Carrots!
About 1 1/2 weeks ago I thought I would harvest my carrots because the weather was going to turn bitter cold. I was glad I did, because our low temps have been in the single digits for almost a week now...Burrrr! My carrots were the last vegetable growing in my garden, and boy were they worth the wait! Can I just say that it is so rewarding to pull these rich orange, crisp, delectable beauties out of my own garden? As long as you have loose, well-drained soil, they are one of the easiest vegetables to grow.
