A resilient, multi-colored, old French heirloom variety still popular among home gardeners. It is an early and very adaptable carrot that can be planted outside from March until July. Do not be fooled by its name “longue” as it is in fact a half-long conical carrot and with a very firm texture that helps with conservation. Amazingly, it will keep its colors after cooking. Its flavor is consistently sweet with a good carrot flavor.
