Carrot 'Carnival Blend' Seed Pack

$2.69
Availability: In stock (6)

This Carnival Blend includes purple-, yellow-, white-, red-, and orange-skinned varieties. To make things even more colorful, the purple-skinned carrots have an orange interior while the red-skinned variety has a yellow interior. Some have tapered ends while others are more rounded, but ultimately, they are basically similar in taste and nutritional value. In the Pacific NW, you'll probably have time to sow these seeds twice, and the second sowing can remain in the ground up until a hard freeze. Light frosts will make them all sweeter.
