Review:

This carrot is sweet and tastes great! It grew well in my clay loam soil, didn't have any insect damage (planted in spring), grew straight without branching, and is great as a snacking carrot. In fact, none of them made it into the house as I washed them off and ate them in the garden...

Tasty Carrot
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Sweet and productive

What are the cons? none

Review:

Last spring was a first attempt at growing carrots. St. Valery took next to no effort and yielded sweet and flavorful carrots that just kept producing off of themselves. There were a few odd shapes in the bunch and colors ranged from bright orange to a deeper red orange. Delicious raw in salads or roasted in the oven. So happy with them that I've planted a larger patch this year!

Best Carrot We have Tried
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Flavor, Germination, Hardiness

What are the cons? None Really

Review:

These were the best carrots out of a few we tried this year. They were always big, smooth, and delicious (best flavor out of all the bunch too). The other carrots started getting these strange rotten places, but the St. Vallery carrot never saw any of that even though it was intermixed. I now have a big head of seeds for next year - Thanks Rareseeds!

Very good carrot
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Tasty, and seeds last a whil

What are the cons? Not uniform

Review:

This is a very tasty carrot. It grows well when I plant in spring to harvest in summer (plant 4/8, harvest 7/8) and plant in summer to harvest in fall and winter (plant 6/30, harvest in November-March). The seeds kept well in a Lock & Lock sealed container. I put an envelope of silica gel in the container, and kept the whole thing in the fridge. In fact, seeds I bought for 2012 grew well in 2014. Just take out what you need to plant. Since St. Valery is an heirloom, it does not provide roots that are all the same. Keep that in mind if you are a market gardener. It's fine for home use, though. 100 feet of row produced about 70 lb. of carrots. They store well in the fridge in summer, and in the ground (heavily mulched) in winter.

Best carrot

What are the pros? Sweet flavor, nice & crisp

What are the cons? Didn't plant nearly enough!

Review:

I've tried all different varieties of carrots over the last several years. No question: St. Valery is the best of all in my S. Vermont garden. Excellent germination, strong growth, excellent flavor and storability. I fill up my big wheelbarrow with them from just one 30' row. This will be my main crop variety from now on.
