75 days. One of the sweetest, this variety was introduced in 1929 and is a large stump-rooted carrot with a deep red-orange center, great for juicing or fresh eating. A good market variety that is smooth and refined in shape.

What are the cons? None

Review:

I sowed these in early spring in a raised bed. I didn't get any monster carrots, but all were great size and had fantastic flavor. They were so sweet, and everyone I shared them with loved them! I will definitely grow again next year.

What are the pros? Huge carrots

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew these this year. After a late New England spring they were sown in late May. These things are no less than 8 inches long and the tops are as big around as a baseball! One carrot feeds us for supper. And not woody at all.

What are the pros? Uniform shape. Tasty!

What are the cons? None

Review:

For what ever reason I have never had much luck growing carrots in my soil. These did very well. Very good uniform shape with none of the branching I usually get. The flavor was perfect for eating fresh out of the garden.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, low maintenance

What are the cons? Slow to mature

Review:

This past year has been my first time growing carrots ever. I sowed these after the last frost and basically didn't touch them again until harvest. They required nothing special from me. I live in Northern California where it is very hot and drought conditions have been severe. I provided them with ample water...when I remembered. They were slow to mature so I left them in the ground for a long time. The ones I pulled up in late summer were huge, often hilarious shapes. One was as big as a child's head. Even when they are overgrown they are tasty and sweet, not woody in texture like I expected. They are excellent when roasted. I can't wait to expand my carrot patch and grow twice as many next year.

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? Really needs loose soil

Review:

This carrot has a great sweet flavor. I actually had one freak carrot grow to the diameter of a soda can. It was one that got lost when the weeds over ran my garden last year. When life got too busy for the garden I still got rewarded! These carrots grow best in loose compost like soil. Most of mine grew to 1 and half inches in diameter and about 8" in length.
