Round Carrots Taste Like Real ThingCarrots produced by this new variety are round - about the size of golf balls - yet taste just like any other top quality carrot.
"Thumbelina" carrots were developed by Petoseed in California. "One unique quality about Thumbelina carrots is that they don't have to be scraped or peeled. Just wash them. They're great served raw or they can be baked whole and served like potatoes," says company product manager Margaret Bahns-Jensen, noting that one of the new varieties' biggest benefits is that they're easier to dig than long-rooted car-rots.
They can be found in a number of national seed catalogs this year or you can contact the company direct. Petoseeds also just introduced seeds for giant watermelons that average over 200 lbs. and mature in 90 to 95 days.
