75-80 Days. Best grown in the fall! This tasty and nutritious red variety from India is extra rich in antioxidants -- very high in beta carotene and lycopene. Red carrots have been cultivated in India since antiquity. Popular for a range of recipes, especially in jams and chutneys. Lycopene is an antioxidant that is most nutritionally effective when cooked with a fat. Consequently, many traditional recipes combine red carrots with oils or fats. These are also great for juicing!
