What are the pros? Tasty and beautiful deep color

What are the cons? Seems to take longer to mature

Review:

It tastes like a carrot but subtly different, more carrot-y. I planted end of September and I've been eating them since last month (February) and I wish I planted more of these instead of Amarillos which did not perform well for me. My Atomic Reds came out skinnier but I'm growing in a rather crowded raised bed. But the roots were straight and not hairy. I'll be planting more of these in fall in their own separate container and maybe do a better job thinning for bigger carrots.

What are the pros? Tasty, reliable

Review:

I have grown these for several years and enjoyed them every time. The seeds that are produced germinate well, although I did get some mutated white carrots. I plant mine in August and harvest them through February. Very delicious carrots, my school and community gardeners love them.

Review:

Amazing carrots. I planted them directly in a small patch in the far corner of my garden in mid June. Before planting I fertilized the soil with general organic fertilizer. Once I saw sprouts, I supplemented them once with fish emulsion fertilizer. After that I never watered them out of laziness. At the end of August I harvested medium (6" Length) to huge (1ft) carrots. The color ranged from light orange to deep red. The flavor was powerful and I actually started coughing while eating one of them. The season was cold and wet (Northern MA). I plan on growing these every year.

Review:

These are a must have for my carrot garden. I love the rich color; almost a deep coral tone. Matured at the same rate as all my other carrots, and are nice sized at 8"-10" long. Mine look just like the picture! I highly recommend!

Review:

I grew 10 varieties last year and this had the best flavor and shape. The deep red color completely saturates the carrot -some reviewers say it doesn't but every Atomic I've grown for the past 3 years has. My favorite thing about this carrot is the flavor is so insanely intense, it's almost SPICY! When I first tried this carrot it got me thinking- what other flavors are out there that I've never tried? Thus began my love affair with heirloom seeds. I blame it all on the Atomic Red.
