Kyoto Red Carrot

         
 
19 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.

Though my Kyoto carrots bolted this year, it was our crazy weather. Last year, they were wonderful. In fact, I'm ordering 2 more packs for next year.

What are the pros? Delicious, if successful

What are the cons? Every carrot has bolted

Review:

Last year, this was my favorite! This year, they are all bolted. Planted same time each year. BUT, I'm not giving up. Am ordering another pack and doing a fall planting to see if that helps here in mid-Michigan. They are delicious! I can only recommend this to a friend if they are patient and likes to experiment with failures.

What are the pros? Long, straight, sweet, pretty

What are the cons? None

Review:

I love these carrots! As the directions say, you should plant in fall so they grow in the cold winter. Mine are not yet completely grown but the ones I’ve pulled are long and beautiful and deliciously sweet. I think I’ll do what other reviewers did and plant in July next year. I planted in October in a bed that is in the shade all winter. Can’t wait for them to be full size!

What are the pros? Grew well in my tiny space

What are the cons? Cost prohibitive now!!!

Review:

Not sure why these didn't work well for others, but they were my favorite. The carrots grew well, when I didn't expect them to. Took a while for them to mature, but they did get mature in this Michigan climate. They ended up far sweeter than my orange variety. But wow! $4 a pack? No can do!!! Will have to search for a cheaper variety.
