Description

Heirloom! This carrot has stood the test of time for lots of reasons. These summer and fall roots can get absolutely enormous if thinned to 3-4″ (ever seen a two-pound carrot??). The size belies its incredible taste, both fresh, cooked and canned; a taste that carrot breeder John Navazio describes as “complex, good old fashioned carrot flavor.” These wedge-shaped, other-worldly beauties make fun conversation pieces at market. The perfect antidote to the deluge of watery, sugar-stick hybrids on the market. (RIP to our beloved cat ‘Beetle’ pictured above)
