What are the pros? Easy to grow, ok in heavy soil
What are the cons? Tasted a little soapy
This is the best crop I've planted in my 4 year gardening career. Every single time I went out to the garden this summer (basically every day), my toddler insisted on digging one or two of these up and eating them after a quick rinse with the hose. I didn't even plant a very large area, but it kept my family of 4 in carrots all summer and fall.
I hadn't thought carrots would do to well in our heavy Washington soil, but these did just fine. Some of the more firmly rooted ones needed to be excavated rather than pulled, otherwise they would snap off. And a few of them branched into two near the end. They were all nice and tender, though, and the whole family enjoyed them. My only complaint is that they tasted a little soapy, but that may be the growing conditions.
