What are the pros? big carrots

What are the cons? cool season only

Review:

Planted these in spring and they almost all bolted... those that didn't bolt were TINY. I was very upset because all of the varieties of carrots I purchased bolted. So I decided that I would try them during the winter... and BOOM... fabulous production. Most of the energy went into the root in lieu of big tall green growth on top. Pulled about 4 today and they are solidly 1 inch in diameter and range from 4-6 inches in length. They have such a wonderful sweet carrot aroma! They don't have any color variation in the core... which is disappointing from a carrot that is supposed to have a "red core"... If you live in the southeast.... i would heavily recommend these during the cool months. They only need to be covered if it snows/ices/freezes. No pests to worry about.

Super sweet
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Very sweet, no pests

What are the cons? No red core

Review:

I didn't get a red core on any of my carrots but I'm really not disappointed because that could be a result of some gardening habbits of mine this year. I was in a rush to plant seed at my new house and the soil had hardly any organic compost material, mostly added manure and worm castings, soil Ph is dead on at 7.0 (carrots prefer 6.5) and the only fertilizer i had was 10-10-10. I'm sure they would've liked 5-10-5 or a higher "P" rating. Other than no red core, these are absolutely delicious in soups, juiced, and my favorite...raw! I would grow these again in a bigger patch with better prepared soil and a separate patch of early carrots to feed me while these grow

What are the pros? Prolific, delicious, strong!

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've grown these before in good gardening soil. This year was our first year in a new community garden...clay soil, starving for nutritives. These carrots were absolutely courageous!! They had only about 5-6 inches in which to find growable soil, and I didn't get out there often enough to really thin them along the way. They grew strongly, albeit about 4-6 inches, sweet, and prolifically. I would have left them in for over-wintering, but we're going to add a LOT of nutritives, e.g. aged manure, peat, sand from fish screens for fertilizer, etc. I may plant a whole single plot of them next year, time-spacing them. Yummmm.

I got a huge harvest of carrots this year between this variety and the Kuroda 8 inch. These were hearty and delicious, easy to grow, and just burst from their containers.

I See Why Campbell Sued Wentz
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? Bright Color.

What are the cons? No Substitutes!

Review:

Campbell's contract with Wentz might have been unconscionable, but I see why they sought an injunction against him! This is THE chantanay red core carrot, and these carrots are simply too unique to award damages for in the case of a breach of contract. Campbell Soup Co. v. Wentz, 172 F.2d 80, 81 (3d Cir. 1948).
