Carrot, Kyoto Red

74% of 100

Our Favorite Carrot! Sweet, fruit-like flavor! This is a Japanese Kintoki type (sweet red) carrot. These silky red carrots are grown near Kyoto, Japan, where they are traditionally eaten on the Japanese New Year, often carved into the shape of a plum blossom to represent fertility in the coming year. These carrots have an exceptional texture and a very sweet, slightly watermelon flavor. A perfect variety for late summer, fall, or winter gardening, the bright red color becomes much darker when grown in the winter. (This variety will not do well if planted in the spring.) Long, tapered roots grow to 10 to 16 inches long. These reign supreme as a roasting, grilling, dessert, and fresh juicing carrot! Possibly the finest flavored carrot on the planet!
