Kyoto Red Carrot

         
 
6 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? Easy Germination

What are the cons? Early flowering impairs yield

Review:

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

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.

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.
