Kyoto Red Carrot

         
 
9 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
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. Long tapered roots grow to 10" to 12" inches long.

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.

What are the pros? I like the idea

What are the cons? I dont konw it never did much

Review:

First off Im not good at all at carrots. Having said that my purple carrots and my normal carrots at least grew; these did not grow at all. Many of the carrot tops grew to a good size. Maybe it got too hot too quick and I read somewhere tomatoes and carrots could grow close together. Ill try these again, like now and hope for good fall.

What are the pros? Easy Germination

What are the cons? Early flowering impairs yield

Review:

After relatively easy germination this variety produced flowers before the carrots were ripe. This seems to be a general problem with this variety.

What are the cons? Lots of flowers, no carrots.

Review:

I planted eight varieties of carrots, this was the only one that went to flower right away before producing any carrots. And not just one or two, every single plant went straight to flower.
