Atomic Red Carrot

75 days. Brilliant red carrots are so healthful and unique-looking, sure to add color to your garden. The 8” roots are high in lycopene, which has been shown in studies to help prevent several types of cancer. Crisp roots are at their best when cooked, and this helps to make the lycopene more usable. Very flavorful.

Review:

I've been experimenting for several years now to find my 'favorite' carrot variety and the search stops with this one! It's easy to grow, can handle neglect, and is delicious! It does incredibly well in my zone 5B garden. The flavor is strong in a good way. Great for eating raw right out of the ground or cooked. It freezes well and seems to hold its taste after long periods in the freezer. I also own a dehydrator and like to dehydrate much of my crops. For those who dehydrate, this variety rehydrates nicely to its original shape and color - no loss of color when cooked like the cosmic variety. A good crop with no negatives.

What are the pros? Like the red color

What are the cons?

Review:

My kids would not eat these raw and would pick them out of their food. They were a little spicey or maybe just not as sweet as the others we grew that year. I only liked them when cooked. Lorri D

Review:

I planted these in a raised bed, and some were in ground closer to 4 months. All came out relatively small and thin compared to my larger/faster Scarlet Nantes. However, Atomic never bolted. I had some southern blight/white mold at tops of some (at soil surface) but didn't bother the rest of the carrot. Great germination rate and decent growth despite record high summer temps, but final carrots after peeling were just too small. Good flavor. Will probably try a different variety this year.

Review:

I grew some of these for the first time this year. They were absolutely lovely, though some seemed more pink than red. I was growing them along with cosmic purples, an unknown lemony yellow variety, and another unknown deep orange variety, so the lack of color intensity might have been a comparison issue on my part. The flavor was mild and sweet, the texture was nice and crisp. These are especially lovely cut on the diagonal and tossed in salads!
