Carrots, Atomic Red #6004 CO2
(74 days) Open-pollinated. This Imperator type is really red with a hint of purple on the outside of the 4–6" cylindrical roots. Slice it open to rings of color, the red rind giving way to a deep orange interior with a lighter core. Even the stems and tops show red. Roots taste mild and sweet when raw. Keeps its color when cooked and develops a yummy carroty sweetness with no harshness. But taste is pure bonus. Color packs the wallop here.
