What are the pros? Taste

Review:

Planted these last summer in a bed with sweet potatoes and romanesco zucchini. The idea was to harvest the carrots before the other plants took over. That didn't work, and the carrots disappeared under the leaves. They struggled but eventually did form small roots. My fault they didn't get bigger, but the flavor was great. I was growing Scarlet Nantes and Red Core Chantenay as well. They produced bigger roots, but I ended up preferring the flavor of these carrots. Will try them again this spring in a place where they will get good sun and see what I get.

Review:

These were my most successful carrot this year. I had a massive harvest between this and the Chantenay Red Core Carrot. The Kuroda was thick, long, and would be superb in stews. I ate many fresh and they were delicious. I will definitely be growing these again!

What are the pros? They germinated!!!

What are the cons? Wish more germinated!

Review:

Ignore my previous comment about these carrots. I really meant the bad review for the Rodelika Carrots which I did not get from Baker Creek. Seeded 75 carrot seeds (yes I counted them ::smile::) only about 25 germinated, but germination for carrots is usually spotty at best anyhow. When I harvested them, however, they were of excellent size. Some were rotted on the end but that's probably because we've had sooo muuuch raaainn!! and I wasn't able to get to them quick enough. Because of that I've been more diligent in harvesting the rest.

What are the pros? Very easy to grow

What are the cons? Shooting up flowers

Review:

The germination rates were excellent and they grow super fast. Very hardy to boot. Overall I'm pleased with them. However, a couple of the carrots unexpectedly shot up flowers and they haven't even reached harvest size yet. Carrots aren't supposed to flower until the second year, so I was surprised and dissapointed. Our odd weather is likely to blame though, so I will give these carrots another shot before judging them too harshly.

Review:

Succession planting begins before last frost in the spring, through the summer heat, then my final installation I pulled my last square foot (yield a dozen) on December 26th-these grow great in all conditions! You should see the faces on kids and guests when they pull out these golden beauties. Makes great soup, we eat on salads, AMAZING roasted.
