description for "Carrots: Daucus carota 'Sunshine Mix'"

'Sunshine Mix' is a custom novelty seed mix from Renee's Garden that offers gardener the fun of growing both sunny yellow and bright orange carrots. You'll have the eye-catching rich harvests or crisp, smooth, evenly cylindrical roots that reach a full 8 inches in length. Both of these premium European varieties taste sweet and crispy with no soapy off-flavors and you can enjoy them over a long harvest period. Whether fresh sliced into carrot sticks, or quickly cooked, their sunshine bright colors are a kitchen gardener's delight! Let 'Sunshine Mix' size up to at least 5 to 6 inches long before pulling for best sweet flavor. Eat them raw, saute or lightly steam. Set off their flavor fresh lemon or orange juice and a sprinkling of minced herbs. Glaze with a little honey, ginger or cinnamon. Fresh mint leaves are a pretty and tasty growth. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
