Kyoto Red Carrot

         
 
16 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.

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.

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.

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.
