I have tried some other red carrot varieties and Kyoto Red is my favorite because of its dark color, great texture and sweet flavor. It is a hit with children and produces a very marketable smooth-skinned root.

This is a Japanese Kintoki type carrot. Its glossy and deep scarlet roots grow into beautifully tapered carrots up to 12" long. The roots are notably tender and sweet. Its sweet flavor makes this variety ideal for carrot juice.
