Tendersweet Carrots are a gardener's favorite breed of carrot. With their smooth skin, extensive length, and nearly coreless roots, these carrots offer a tasty, crisp, and sweet flavor that often gets described as "candy for supper". Beyond their taste, this variety is also known for its aesthetic properties, growing 9-10 inches long and often even longer. During cooking and freezing processes, their rich, deep orange-red color does not fade or lose its vibrancy.
Thoughtful gardening does not stop at choosing the right breed of carrot to plant. Understanding the conditions under which carrots thrive best is crucial for a fruitful yield. For instance, carrots need fertile, deep, well-drained, sandy loam soil to grow best in terms of size, color, and flavor. These types of fertile soil promote root growth, which in turn gives birth to long, healthy, and delicious Tendersweets.
Tendersweets take approximately 75 days to harvest since planting. Grown as an annual; grows best at 60-70 degrees; seed can be sown every few weeks from early spring until August; thin to 2". These consistently receive rave reviews from gardeners for their unique and incredibly sweet taste that is unmatched in the market of available carrot varieties.
