Description

Little Finger Carrot - Big Carrot Taste

A baby gourmet carrot with a sweet flavor and delicious crunch. Slender 3 - 3.5" roots, very small core, smooth skin, deep orange color and full carrot taste.

Color develops quickly, can and should be pulled early. Developed in France for using whole.

History

Carrots originated in Europe and Central Asia. The first cultivated variety had branching purple roots and is believed to have been developed in Afghanistan. It migrated to the Mediterranean in the 14th century and then northwards. The orange varieties were developed in the Netherlands in the 17th century. 

Uses

Coarsely or finely grated carrots are eaten raw as a salad. They are one of the most widely used vegetables they are cut, sliced, diced, cooked, steamed or juiced. Carrots are included in soups and stews and used in sauces and stocks.

Harvest Tip

Give carrots a good twist when you pull them up so that the leaves do not break off in your hand, but once they are up, cut off the leaves right away. Carrot tops may look pretty, but they keep growing and draw moisture and nourishment out of the roots, leaving them limp, wrinkled and tasteless.

    Sweet with tons of carrot flavor! I could eat these for desert. Puts a store bought carrot to shame.
