A nice, sweet carrot good for eating fresh. Very crisp and with a bit more juice than many other varieties. Grows to about 6 inches in length, handles my light clay soil well. I get pelleted seed from Harris Seed Company; it germinates well, and because it's easy to space, I don't need to do any thinning later.
