What are the pros? They are red.
What are the cons? Flowered, hairy roots, bitter
I agree with the comments from the person from IL. I see that the warmer climates love this carrot, but I was disappointed. I really wanted to find a good red/purple carrot. I have had some of the same issues with other red/purple carrots. Maybe our cooler climates? First they did not germinate well. A number of plants flowered, had woody stems. Others had excessive hairy roots, tasted bitter. Only ended up with a small crop of edible carrots, and they had an odd taste to them. My other orange carrots were fine. I don't mean to discourage other gardeners from giving these a try - that is part of the fun of gardening. But these carrots just didn't perform well for me.
