Heirloom! This carrot has stood the test of time 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 great 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.
