Nantes is famous for its carrots and this Chantenay variety is a prime example of a stubby French carrot, from the next town along from Nantes. Medium sized with good colour and crunch, it does not require peeling or topping and is ideal for eating fresh or cooked.


Franchi, established in 1783, is the oldest family-run seed company in the world. It specialises in endangered and heritage vegetable varieties, inspiring growers to support biodiversity by planting something slightly different from the mainstream.
