Great little eating carrot!
Reviewed By: W (College Station, TX)
When I wasn't looking, my children planted these in my raised beds with my asparagus, mixed them in with my flower beds and planted them in my garden rows in random places. Although they are short and hard to hold on to for peeling prior to canning, I canned 50+ pints with these carrots. That was in the spring and we are still pulling up carrots to eat in October. Hardy and easy to grow!

Disappointed in this item
Reviewed By: Gail (Montrose, Pennsylvania)
Planted the seed tape just as instructed and got nothing, not even one sprout, I will be going back to the regular dropping the seeds myself.

works well in rocky soil
Reviewed By: Julia Lichty (Blairstown, NJ)
I purchased this variety, hoping that the short, stubby roots would hold up well in our rocky soil. They not only performed, but have so far overperformed! This is my first year growing them, and they're the sweetest, most delectable carrots I've ever had, with very little forking. I'll definitely be repeating this purchase next year.
