Fun Carrots to grow!
Reviewed By: W (College Station, TX)
These are the right size, easy, and provide an aesthetic touch to a gourmet meal when company comes over. The kids will love trying to guess what color they will get when they pull them up. We've eaten these carrots fresh, steamed and even canned. The white carrots are a little different - they don't can very well and need to be harvested sooner for best results - they tend to grow more like a taproot of a tree than a carrot root. Overall, very tasty, easy to grow, and a great way to get the kids involved in gardening.

Colorful carrots
Reviewed By: Micah Wade (Spokane, Washington)
These carrots were the BEST! I got one carrot 15 inches long and as wide as a silver dollar. I can't post a picture, but I do have one. I took my bountiful harvest to a church banquet And I didn't take any home. They were a huge hit!

Almost too pretty to eat!
Reviewed By: Kari (Hull, Iowa)
These colorful carrots grew great with very little maitenance. They taste great and also keep well - it is Febuary and I still have some in the basement. The colors enticed even my 3 boys to eat, raw or cooked. I canned many and they are so pretty, I have a jar in my kitchen just for decoration!

Interesting and tasty!
Reviewed By: Wendy (Chicago, IL)
Grew these in windowboxes on my deck railing. Easy to grow - I'm a complete novice - and very tasty. And yes, my rabbit loves the tops too.

Loved the colors!
Reviewed By: Mark (Miles City, Montana)
These carrots grew well, and I got a great crop of multi colored carrots. They look great on a vegetable tray, but looked stunning after steaming and put on the dinner plate. I found all the varieties to taste great either raw or steamed.

What fun!
Reviewed By: Debbe (Kent, WA)
These carrots sprouted and grew quickly. Loved the luxuriant tops for our bunnies and piggies - the red and purple coloured carrots were a tad too bitter for raw eating, but the others had a rich, carroty flavor.
