This is one of the most delicious carrots I have ever eaten. I love carrots and have grown dozens of varieties, and let me tell you, this one ranks near the top. Fast growing, as I am picking these after 60 days of growth. The carrot is very crisp and very sweet. The flavor is unique and hard to describe. As you bite into these carrots, it leaves the impression that you just smelled a freshly zested lemon. That is the best way i can describe it. If you like carrots, do yourself a favor and try these, i don't think you will be disappointed. From other comments on the net, a reoccurring comment is, be sure to pick these at the proper time or they will become woody.

From Baker creek Heirloom Seeds Description - A delicious North African carrot that produces blocky, 7" orange roots that have exceptional flavor and a crisp, crunchy texture. They hold up well at market, and are late bolting. Rare and almost impossible to find!
