Heriloom. A stunning and rare French heirloom. A sunburst inside and out, going from dark red shoulders to more orange at the tip and in cross section, containing colors from brilliant purple skin to an orange, and yellow core. Unlike many colored carrot varieties we find this one to be sweet without a trace of bitterness. Does well harsh and arid climates with good germination vigor. Mentioned in the Journal D agriculture Pratique 1897 by Vilmorin.
