Kyoto Red Carrot

         
 
12 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

(For fall planting only.) 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 sweet 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 may not do well if planted in the Spring) Long tapered roots grow to 10” to 12” inches long.

Production review of Kyoto Red

What are the pros? Beautiful, red, sweet carrot.

What are the cons? The carrot is very long.

Review:

The carrot produced well with the challenging year of being too wet and too cool. The carrot grew well in my area, grow zone 4. With the carrot being quite long it requires a raised bed or a mounded row in the field so that it can grow in a somewhat soft medium. I would agree with the other reviewers that it is a late season crop. I had planted it in mid July.

What are the pros? Beautiful color; large size

What are the cons? Early flowering

Review:

We are in Zone 6; planted these in mid July and and are harvesting now (October-November). About a third of them went to seed early.. I think that might have been due to an abnormally warm late summer/early fall season here in Michigan; if we had had our usual very cool September and October, perhaps we would have not had a problem. The fully mature ones are absolutely beautiful -- a deep, rosy crimson color, very large size and pretty good flavor. They are not as delicate in texture as the two Nantes varieties we planted at the same time (and none of those went to seed, even with the warm fall weather).. they are a little coarser in texture. Nonetheless I will probably grow these again, although maybe not so many... they are just so gorgeous to look at, and make a very impressive showing in a platter of roasted root vegetables.

Review:

Love these carrots, Our garden is zone 4, and these did great even at a late planting time. 1st time growing these, planted on July fourth and started harvesting mid September. This was a 2nd planting in the bed this year following lettuce. I used a compostable weed barrier in the bed and kept them well watered until established. My kids love these and take 1-2 to school for snack daily. I have had a couple that were over 15 inches long, and 2 inches in diameter and were not woody and still just as sweet. will be planting more of these in the future.

What are the pros? Best tasting carrot

What are the cons? can't grow in spring

Review:

For those of you who had flowering problems, you cannot grow this in the spring. Increasing daylight hours induces flowering in this variety of carrots like some other varieties. Look at all the reviews that complained of flowering. They are all in late spring or summer because they planted in the spring. The summer solstice is around June 20-22, so plant in July at the earliest and they should act like other carrots becaue daylight will shrink until December.. I planted some in spring for the heck of it and almost all flowered while others were not flowering. I planted some in July and I picked them in October and November and they were delicious, sweet, and crisp. They were the best tasting carrot. It is a shame if people are dissuaded from growing them because they flowered in the Spring.
