Tendersweet Carrot

Description
Rave Reviews for Flavor
How sweet are Tendersweet Carrots? One gardener describes them "like candy for supper." We describe them as the sweetest on the market and oh-so-crisp. The uniform, deep orange-red roots are smooth skinned, fine grained and nearly coreless—and they grow 9-10 inches long, and often longer. The gorgeous color stays during cooking and freezing. Year after year, this Gurney's Choice variety receives rave reviews from gardeners for their sweetness and flavor. Did you know that carrots grow best when planted in light, fertile, deep, well-drained, sandy loam soil? Many gardeners sow radishes with carrots to mark rows and conserve space. 75 DAYS.

Seed Counts: 1/2 oz. of carrot seeds contains about 8,000 seeds and sows 100 ft. of row.
