What are the pros? Prolific, sweet & juicy

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew extremely well. Liberally broadcast along with other blended carrot seeds in black clay soil with coffee grounds, sand and ground egg shells. They really were the best of the bunch. Very large, long tap roots (hairy yes! But they peel easily). Crisp and sweet even after a dry summer. Stored well too. I'll grow them away from other varieties next year only because I'd like to pull them separately when I'd like to use them. I've heard a wide range of differing results from growers around the Northern hemisphere - not all good. I guess you just have to try them in your area & see if they work for you. They're definitely worth a try.

Not a great carrot
Easy to Grow 1.5
EarlyMaturity 1.5
 

What are the pros? Color

What are the cons? Bolts easy, taste like a beet

Review:

These carrots bolted pretty quickly for us in our spring planting. We then tried growing them in our hoophouse for winter production and they did better. However the actual carrots are extremely hairy and did not germinate well. Really the taste on these reminded me of a mild beet and not a carrot at all. As I am not a fan of beets we will probably not grow these again. We will probably try these as a dye though for our wool and see what that will do. The color is pretty amazing.

What are the pros? Fun to grow, easy

What are the cons? Hairy, texture,flavor

Review:

Fun to grow deep purple carrots. However they were weirdly hairy. The flavor was unremarkable and the texture was not very crisp. I'm going to enjoy trying out some of the other colored carrots from rareseeds
