Atomic Red Carrot (Daucus carota) Annual, Open Pollinated, Non-GMO, 
Minimum 15 seeds. 

Atomic Red' is an 8"-10" long, crisp, sweet imperator-type root. When you steam, roast, or stir-fry it, the contrast between the brilliant, deep red outer layer and orange core intensifies. Grow successive crops every 3 weeks to ensure continuous harvests as this colorful carrot is sure to be in high demand once it is seen and tasted.

Brilliant red carrots are so healthful and unique-looking, sure to add color to your garden. The roots are high in lycopene, which has been said to aide in many health benefits. Crisp roots are at their best when cooked, and this helps to make the lycopene more usable and it is a very flavorful carrot.

Having multi colored carrots in the garden growing entices the kids to eat more veggies I do believe. Cooking the carrots enhances the color.

Keeping soil moist throughout the germination period is important. Misting the planted area daily or covering is recommended. Carrots are slow to germinate and need steady moisture until germination. Sow successively throughout the season for fresh carrots.
