I got this in a trade sometime ago and I don't even remember who sent it. It was a extra and not something I had asked for so I am at a loss to say where I got it.


I liked the flavor and the deeper orange color that was almost an orange red it was so deep. Texture and flavor were very good and I used some of these to make carrott cake. I let a few go to seed and captured the seed head in a pair of panty hose.
