Our Favorite Carrot Varieties
Fresh from the Cooking Light Garden, these carrot varieties are easy to grow and vary in size, shape, and color.
Heirloom carrot varieties bring real delight with their stunning sunset colors and profound sweetness.
The squat, round shape of Paris Market carrots makes these French imports ideal for planting in shallow soil—perfect for container or window box gardeners.
Striking colors inside and out set Dragon carrots apart. Serve them halved lengthwise and roasted. For an even more dramatic presentation, shave raw into thin strips and toss in a salad.
Finger-thin but considerably longer—averaging about 6 inches—these are great all-purpose carrots. Their uniform size ensures even cooking, whether roasted, steamed, or sautéed.
