I believe Autumn King and Flakkee are the same. This has been our most successful storage carrot so far. Like all carrots they are not the easiest to grow and require a lot of attention (and regular and copious water). Still, well worth while. They can get to quite a larg size but still stay tender and tasty. Not as uniform as hybrids but fine with me.
