Carrot 'Atomic Red'

Daucus carota

  • Unique colour and flavour

A striking carrot, producing tapering roots up to 25cm (10") long with coral-red skin and flesh. The rich red colour is due to high levels of lycopene, a healthy antioxidant. The colour becomes more intense and the flavour deepens once Carrot 'Atomic Red' is cooked, although it looks equally striking when sliced or grated into salads raw. Harvestable from July through to October, the strong foliage makes this colourful carrot easier to lift. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 15cm (6").
