Like almost every other alternately-colored carrot I have tried, this one looked pretty but really had no taste to it with either a spring or fall planting.

I grew white satin carrots this year in zone 5a, Iowa. They came out very nicely in my raised beds, which are mostly compost mixed with some topsoil. Good carroty flavour and nice firm crunch!
