Comments: This hard-to-find heirloom variety was developed in France in the late 1880s, and produces a very large, heart-shaped root that can grow up to 1 lb. Short, orange roots grow 5-6 inches long and 3-4 inches wide, making them an excellent choice for gardens with shallow, heavy soil. Great choice for container gardening. Also grows well in the loamy soil that carrots usually prefer. Has a very pleasing sweet, mild flavor, and crisp texture. Stores very well. Great variety for juicing. In France, this variety is known as Guerande.
