Review:

I grew several varieties of carrots this year: Purple dragon, Cosmic Purple, St. Valery, Nantes Scarlet, Parisienne, and these Atomic Red carrots. The Atomic Reds germinated okay (not as well as, say, the Nantes Scarlet, but still fine), and are growing adequately, but they have not developed much in the way of a red color. I'd say they're more of a slightly pinkish orange. In addition, the flavor is somewhat bland. I was surprised to read other reviews saying that these were spicy! If you're planning to grow only one variety of carrot, I'd skip these and choose St. Valery instead. Or, if you want a very carroty flavored carrot, the purple carrots fit the bill nicely.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
