Germination wasn\'t bad and produced a good crop despite leaves initially being eaten, leaving the stem and ribs. They recovered nicely but some of the tops were eaten above soil line leaving carrots in the ground.

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.
