An old french variety sometimes known as ‘Guerande’ and originally grown in the neighbourhood of Nantes. A snub nosed variety, which will grow well in containers or shallow soil. The roots can be 10-13cm (4-5”) wide at the shoulder, and will not get much longer. The name gives a perfect description on the shape of this carrot. Sweet and tender, ‘Oxheart’ is a quick grower with less foliage than you’d expect from the size of the root, and its an excellent keeper.
