Using a serrated knife, cut the croissants open horizontally, keeping the top halves still attached along one side like a hinge.
Blend the mayonnaise and crème fraîche together in a bowl. Add the carrot, apple, spring onions, radishes and pecan nuts. Season and mix together well.
Spoon the mixture on to the bottom half of each croissant, then top with the ham. Close the croissants and serve at once.
