Kyoto Red Carrot

         
 
14 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Amazing for Fall and Winter Gardening) 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.

What are the pros? Color was nice

What are the cons? Flavor was lacking

Review:

I planted these in Spring and had no problems with them bolting as others have said. As far as the flavor, I just wasn't very impressed... the other varieties I grew were much more tasty and tender. The color was cool, but I tend to value flavor above all else, and this just wasn't the best varitey I've grown in that aspect.

Review:

This carrot grew well in my garden and looked good but when eaten it is tough and full of fiber. I pulled the whole row and threw them away.

Production review of Kyoto Red
Easy to Grow 4.0

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.
