Daucus carota This beautiful carrot is very unique on the sense that it is a nice dark pink color when it is harvested or raw and it turns a deep dark scarlet red after cooking. They are 8-11ï¿½€ï¿½ long, crispy and nutrient dense. The delicious flavor and color really increases when cooked! For best color you can bake, steam or roast them. 70 - 75 days.
