Description

Nearly coreless. Sweet, brilliant orange, blunt, cylindrical roots are very delicate and fine-grained. High moisture content make them a natural for juicing and good for storing. Originally from France but grown in this country for 70 years now. A good variety for heavier soils. Adds character to any soup, stew or roast; delicious when simply steamed or cut into carrot sticks. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
