Kyoto Red Carrot

72% of 100

70-90 Days. Our Favorite! This is a Japanese kintoki "sweet red" type grown near Kyoto, Japan. They are traditionally eaten on the Japanese New Year and often carved into the shape of a plum blossom to represent fertility in the coming year. These carrots have an exceptional texture and sweet flavor. A perfect variety for late summer, fall, or winter gardening, though it may not do well if planted in spring. The bright red color becomes much darker when grown in the winter. Long, tapered roots can grow 10-18" long.
