Absolute best tasting carrot. Very sweet carrots that will get up to 2-2.5 inches across if left long enough. I prefer to harvest at about 1-1.5 inches. These are excellent raw or roasted with olive oil. Can be grown very close together, and harvested earlier than long types.

Fun little round carrots with a nice carrot flavor. Harvested at around 2 inches in diameter they make for good steamed whole carrots, but they can be left in the ground quite a while and still keep well. Picked over 3 inches in diameter, they have a more pronounced greenish core, but are still fine for soups and such. Kids love these and they are easy to grow as they do not require great depth of soil. Will bolt in my garden when temps are in the high 90s consistently. The flowers attract ladybugs en masse, so it is not a bad thing to let some go.
