I only grew these one time. The carrots got very long. I had to get a pick to dig them out of my tough clay based soil. The flavor was very bland. I was disappointed in the flavor. The yield was good.

Very easy to grow, quite good harvested early as baby carrots too. Let a few overwinter for second spring flowers that bees adore, followed by viable seed for future plantings.
