Nice little carrot with good flavor. Harvested at under 5 inches they are great steamed whole and tossed quickly in a hot pan with a little butter and salt. Also good raw. Kids love these little carrots too!

My carrot of choice. Clay soils require sand amendments. One "playground-type" bag for my 4x5 root crop space. Dug them just before Thanksgiving. Sweet, well-formed. Beauties in the canning jars, too!

Reliable variety. Don't crowd them or else there will be a wide variation in size. Uniform diameter from top to bottom of the root.
