This handsome scarlet sweet-tasting heirloom carrot dates from about 1870 although it has been often improved. This variety is a core-less variety. It is our favorite for eating and juicing, due to its flavor, crispness and juiciness. 6-7” cylindrical and blunt-shaped roots. It is a good keeper and retains its flavor in storage.
