Kyoto Red Carrot

         
 
7 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? I like the idea

What are the cons? I dont konw it never did much

Review:

First off Im not good at all at carrots. Having said that my purple carrots and my normal carrots at least grew; these did not grow at all. Many of the carrot tops grew to a good size. Maybe it got too hot too quick and I read somewhere tomatoes and carrots could grow close together. Ill try these again, like now and hope for good fall.

What are the pros? Easy Germination

Review:

After relatively easy germination this variety produced flowers before the carrots were ripe. This seems to be a general problem with this variety.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Lots of flowers, no carrots.

Review:

I planted eight varieties of carrots, this was the only one that went to flower right away before producing any carrots. And not just one or two, every single plant went straight to flower.

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.
