By now, most consumers have heard that those packages of baby carrots you buy in the store are not really baby carrots at all, but large carrots that have been whittled down to size. 'Little Finger' carrots are truly baby-sized carrots, only three inches long at their peak. This naturally means that you won't have to wait as long to harvest these roots, as most other carrots are at least twice as long at their peak. Delicious raw and fresh from the garden, these are also the perfect size for pickling or canning.
