A delicious North African carrot that produces blocky, 7” orange roots that have exceptional flavor and a crisp, crunchy texture. They hold up well at market and are late bolting. Rare and almost impossible to find!

What are the pros? Easy germination, taste

What are the cons? Nothing?

Review:

If you're wondering whether or not to buy this carrot, the answer is YES. Buy it! Excellent germination, it's good in heavy soils, and the taste is phenomenal. It takes a long time to mature, but I've grown it in 95 degree weather and 17 degree weather, and it's been keeping on.

What are the pros? Everything

Review:

Such a great carrot! I'm not a carrot person - I often think I want to eat them, then lose my enthusiasm once they're on the plate. But these have the perfect touch of spiciness. They're not bitter or sharp, just complex enough to add real interest. They're great raw or cooked. They grow beautifully, too, and seem less fussy about soil, weather, and thinning than other varieties we've tried. It's exciting to pull them and see how gorgeous they are! I hope Baker Creek keeps offering these - we'd miss them if they became unavailable. They've became the only long orange carrot we really want to grow.

What are the pros? Taste, texture

What are the cons? Germination rate

Review:

Maybe it was just me, but the germination rate was poor this time. However, we do have very rocky ground, so this is the first year in this garden and we are working on building the top soil (Back to Eden method). We are in zone 6b and planted in the spring for a summer harvest. I think I am out of seeds, but I am thinking about trying again for a fall harvest. I will say though, the flavor alone is worth trying again, especially knowing that it had such a sweet taste when harvesting in July! The taste is very much like a carrot, but with such a unique aftertaste that has floral overtones. It's hard to describe, but you feel like you just tasted a heavenly delicacy! I will definitely add this to my list to try again at some point! P.S. For those with rocky ground - the purple dragon carrot performed amazingly well for us! The taste does not compare to this one in the summer though, not yet sure on the fall flavors...

What are the pros? The concept

What are the cons? Never appeared

Review:

I was so excited about these carrots - especially having a fall crop carrot option - but they just never showed up. I kept trying and trying but not a single one ever even germinated. I'll try again in the spring...

What are the pros? Big blocky delicious early

What are the cons? Not super sweet

Review:

This is the first year we've grown this. My favorite has always been Kurodo Long, but this is my scond favorite. It is a great early carrot with a thick beautiful yellow core. It is moderately sweet and almost floral herbacious tasting. We are already picking handfuls. I will definitely always grow this in the future.
