description for "Carrots: Daucus carota 'Bolero'"

These well-bred new Nantes carrots have a slender, 6 to 7 inch long, perfectly cylindrical shape with blunt tips. 'Bolero' is a beautiful deep orange with consistently sweet flavor and juicy brittle texture, perfect to harvest either full sized or as slim elegant baby carrots. 'Bolero' matures quickly with smooth skin that needs little peeling and fine textured crispy flesh. 'Bolero' is a fine French delicacy to savor fresh from your garden. Let these carrots color up to orange before harvesting for best sweet flavor. Eat fresh, juice or lightly steam. Set off their flavor with fresh lemon or orange juice and a sprinkling or minced herbs. Or glaze with a little honey and ginger or cinnamon. Fresh mint leaves are a tasty, pretty garnish for fresh garden carrots. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
