A nice little baby carrot with good flavor. I try to harvest when they are around 4 to 5 inches, though they than can grow larger if left in the ground. Over 6 inches they develop a pronounced core but are still quite tasty. Very reliable variety in my mild winter climate, but bolt quickly with higher late spring temps. Flowers attract lady bugs like crazy.

The little carrots were very sweet when we harvested them. The tops didn't have to get very big, and they took up little space.
