Supermarket carrots are frequently selected by retailers for their visual appeal and size. Which is why you don't often find Scarlet Nantes Carrots in the produce section of your local grocery store.
Scarlet Nantes Carrots are fairly short and stubby in comparison to standard classic varieties and also have a blunt tip - not the typical pointed one that you'll see bugs bunny gnawing on, and they simply aren't "cute" enough to display with the baby carrots.
Many Home gardeners are well aware that taste and texture take precedence over any eye candy. Scarlet Nantes is a consistent producer of crunchy sweet carrots favored by many seasoned gardeners. They date back to the 1850s in France and and have become popular around the Western World.
