What are the pros? Delicous, Nice Size, Yellow
What are the cons? Get Pithy Quckly
I live in zone 8a along the coast so I attempted to overwinter my carrots with some success. The Amarillos that came up grew to a good size despite my dense soil. I did not give them too much care besides weeding and thinning, only a little bit of compost teas fertilizer and water and I think they did well all in all. Colour was beautiful, just as sunny as the picture describes and the flavor was also good until they got a little pithy when the weather warmed. They do not like North Carolinas summer heat at all and most of them got tough and pithy by April. I would recommend them as a semi-hardy frost hardy early spring/ overwinter crop, but you have to harvest them early because they grow fairly slowly and sour quickly when it gets hot.
