Carrot Tendersweet

$2.49 / EA

Carrot Tendersweet - (~600 seeds)

This classic carrot can't be beat! 'Tendersweet' is an impressively long, slender, and nearly coreless imperator-type carrot, with a super sweet flavor that's excellent raw or cooked. Its deep orange-red color will remain after being steamed, baked, or frozen. Gather them together for a beautifully tapered orange bunch with dazzling green tops.
