White color is very nice especially amongst the orange and purple and looks nice in salads and soups, but had no flavor, very bland.

A \"fun\" variety to grow amongst other colors. The seeds were a spectacular silver color which was our first amazement at this plant. The carrots themselves were large and straight. The flavor was not all there but it would be a nice addition to soup etc. Many people thought they were parsnips at the tasting events we held.

Visitors liked seeing this carrot, especially when placed alongside the Purple Haze and Bolero that were grown. It is not very sweet, but offers a nice contrast when put into a salad or stew.

Huge harvest from my short rows. Some of the biggest carrots I have ever grown. Did very well for a drought year and limited watering.Have not tasted yet but will review flavor later.

Grew nicely, producing a very firm long vegetable. Flavor left me wanting. I personally like a stronger tasting carrot.

Very good novelty carrot. Is a pale cream color. Very good texture. Really like the taste, but be aware it is a little different than a regular carrot. More mild flavored than other carrots which makes for both a nice color and a nice flavor contrast when mixed with other carrots.
