What are the pros? Shape, flavor, ease of growing
What are the cons? None
I grew Koral carrots in the New Orleans Northshore area for the first time this year. I sowed the seeds in late January or early February. I was very pleased with the ease of germination, growing, and harvesting. The ones that I picked on about April 15th were delicious. The ones that were partially shaded were not big enough to harvest until May 12th (travel also prevented earlier harvest in May) were a little bitter. I would advise to harvest when temperatures are predicted to reach 85 degF for several days, and certainly before you have your first 88 degF day. Next year I will plant in October, November, and late January (warm weeks) for a staggered harvest. Water frequently!
I loved the short, fat shape, as the carrots were able to grow to full length with a nice, hefty mass in about a foot of potting soil in plastic bins.
