Excellent carrot! These stay short enough that they grow well in deeper windowbox type containers which is a plus for space challenged gardening.

I've grown Nantes Fancy 2 years now with good success. The short roots do well in my rocky soil, and the flavor is great, especially when roasted. My wife says the smaller size makes them harder to prepare.
