Kyoto Red Carrot

         
 
4 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This is a Japanese kintoki type (sweet red) carrot. These silky red carrots are grown near Kyoto Japan, where they are traditionally eaten on the Japanese New Year, often carved into the shape of a plum blossom to represent fertility in the coming year. These carrots have an exceptional texture and sweet flavor. A perfect variety for late summer, fall or winter gardening, the bright red color becomes much darker when grown in the winter. Long tapered roots grow to 10" to 12" inches long.

What are the pros? Sweet, juicy & crunchy

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I'm not sure where the other negative reviews are coming from. These carrot are great. I did have some issues with them germinating last spring, but I had problems with everything germinating last spring, not just them. I planted again in mid-summer along with Amarillo and they both did great. It is a very sweet and juicy carrot. It is great for fresh eating and juicing.

What are the pros? Quick growing

What are the cons? Went to flower too quickly

Review:

I was excited to grow these this year but ended up getting rid of them due to the fact that they all went to flower. I noticed a similar post buy another person and they stated it was the heat. I'm in central Canada and our weather isn't that hot. Wondering if it's the soil composition? Or other plants around it.

What are the pros? Germinated well

What are the cons? Couldn't eat a single one

Review:

I was so excited for these. I planted 4 square feet of them via the square foot gardening method. They germinated just fine and grew nice, leafy tops. In fact, so nice and leafy that they all shot up flower stalks. In their first year. Every last one of them! The roots were useless for eating - tough and woody. What a disappointment! The weather has been going hot (90s) and cold (70s) in northern Utah this summer, which could have affected it, but none of the other carrot varieties I planted have had this problem. I also grew kuroda, lunar white, and cosmic purple (all from this site).
