Yes, Sweetness lll now. Good germination, sizes up early (spring planted), very uniform root shape. The flavor and deep orange interior color were exceedingly slow to develop and did not become acceptable until late August. Stores very well.

Actually the variety is now Sweetness III. Available from Jung Seeds. Best carrot I have ever raised. True to description. Very uniform and sweet tasting without a hard core. Even in our somewhat heavy soil they were as pictured in the seed catalog and the taste is superior. A tender carrot that wouldn't hold up to commercial harvesting. If you like carrots, you will love Sweetness III!
