The flavor is good, but the best thing about these are the shape. They're called 'ball carrots' by my kids & they eat them up! They're pretty in roasts & other dishes as well. I planted them for the first time last year & decided pretty quickly that they will get more space this year.
When I saw this I thought the would be so cute in stew and soups. They grow OK but they are not my favorite to eat raw and they are hard to clean for cooking.
Trying to get our boys into gardening has been difficult. These little carrots are so fun. Our boys have their own garden bed and they can pull these out without any trouble or fuss. They are so little and cute. We love them, although like another reviewer said, they're not that sweet. Our 3 year old usually takes a small bite and then we get the rest. These will be ordered yearly for our youngest, as they are just a great, fun carrot for kids.
