Thumbelina Carrots were one of my most exciting crops this year. I can safely say that nearly every seed I planted produced a round, golf-ball size carrot with exceptional taste. I used these carrots in my crudité platters because they are the perfect size for dipping. I'm all organic, and my seeds were from Seeds of Change.
