From Semena: "A Kuroda type carrot hybrid with a typical Chantenay root shape. Harvestable in 110 days from sowing. The tops are very strong, with excellent field tolerance to Alternaria: resistant to Alternaria leaf blight (IR). The roots have uniform deep orange interior color. The average root length is 18-20 cm. High breakage tolerance throughout the crop season. Good bolting tolerance. Suitable for early production. Particularly well suited for the processing industry due to its color being much more intense than in many other carrot varieties."
