Carrot for a container
I've grown these in large pots more than once after my aunt showed me how to get it to work. These are great carrots when cooked and added to soups. they aren't the best raw eating carrots, but very sweet after roasted or added to soups.
Great carrot for container gardening here in zone 5/6. Good taste, and found to be ideal for roasting.
