TASTY !!! We tried the St. Valery as an addition to our crops of Danvers, Danvers 126 and Long Imperator. What a pleasant surprisethe flovor gave us. One of the finest tasting carrots we have grown with very good conventional carrot shape and a fine crop yield. We will expand this crop for next year also.
