This is a great flavored carrot that is works well for cooking or eating raw. My 5 year old son also loves to help me plant these (which can lead to having 3 or 4 carrots planted together). He'll watch "his" carrots the entire growing season, and then search for the biggest one when it's time to harvest. I would definitely recommend these carrots!
