The Atomic Red weren't as productive as the others...and tasted the same.
My friends who grow carrots always work in some hardwood ash into the soil. Beets do well with it as well.
I transplanted carrots this year (started indoors in tiny soil blocks).
Tendersweet. My maiden voyage, and the bar must be raised....so yummy....and crunchy, and sweet....and tender...oh yeah, hence the name

I recently pulled the carrots. Over winter I grew Tendersweet (very good) and Little Fingers (excellent). Both were juicy.
