Gardeners' Notes:

Positive pajaritomt On Oct 21, 2006, pajaritomt from Los Alamos, NM (Zone 5a) wrote:

I have grown Royal Chantenay for years as my main carrot because of our clay soil. I have good yields and my family enjoys it very much. Friends remark on its shape which has a steep angle from to outside edge to growing tip at the bottom. It's shape helps it grow in heavy soils, I am told. Taste is sweet. It will fork if there are rocks in the soil.
