Product Details

'Rainbow' is a pleasing mix of colors from coral to yellow to white--a quite unusual variation from just one seed cultivar! Unlike colored carrot blends which produce varied sizes of roots, 'Rainbow' carrots are uniform and mature all at once, making them a great choice for pickling and canning (recipe inside this packet). A cross of Nantes and imperator types, the flavorful roots are long, at 7"–9". The colors may be mellow, but the flavor is big and sweet with all the crunchiness you expect in a homegrown carrot.
