description for "Carrots: Daucus carota 'King Midas'"

Strike it rich with these long, handsome, sweet carrots. A favorite in the Imperator hybrid class, 'King Midas' offers large size and rich, fully developed carrot flavor. The vigorous roots of 'King Midas' grow steadily into smooth, nearly coreless 8 to 9 inch beauties, slightly tapered with pointed tips. The well-filled carrots have the deep orange flesh that indicates and especially high level of health enhancing beta-carotene. Slice them into abundant crunchy carrot stick snacks or fat carrot "coins" to lightly steam, saute or stirfry. Let 'Kind Midas' size up to 6 to 8 inches long before pulling for best sweet flavor. Eat them raw, sliced up as tasty fresh snacks, sauteed, steamed or braised. Set off their flavor fresh lemon or orange juice and a sprinkling of minced herbs like fresh mint or thyme or glaze with a little honey, ginger or cinnamon. Wonderful in colorful stirfries all season long. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
