Great carrot. Produced very well, even in my gravelly clay soil. Carrots get very big by the end of the summer, but stay tender. Wait until after a good hard freeze to harvest for maximum sweetness. Very brittle texture, must be hand-dug. Keeps reasonably well.

Produced well over the winter in subtropical conditions (South Florida). The carrots took a while to mature but were very sweet and with very little core.

Great sweet taste. Quite slow in my garden, taking all summer to get to decent size. But the taste is worth the wait.
