Product Description

Caracas carrots are a type of carrot known as "chantenay," a variety that first became popular over 50 years ago. Then and now, they are beloved for their fresh, sweet flavor. You don't need to peel or top chantenay carrots--just wash them and start snacking! Caracas carrots are best when harvested young, at 2-3", and served whole with your favorite veggie dip. They're easy to grow where larger carrots would be difficult, and they mature more quickly. Like all carrots, Caracas supports healthy vision and boosts your immune system with vitamin A and plenty of antioxidants. 57 days to maturity.
