Strike it rich with these long, handsome, sweet carrots. Our favorite in the Imperator hybrid class, King Midas offers large size and rich, fully developed carrot flavor. The vigorous roots grow steadily into smooth, nearly coreless 8 to 9 inch beauties, slightly tapered with pointed tips. The well-filled carrots have the deep orange flesh that indicates an especially high level of health enhancing beta-carotene. Slice them into abundant crunchy carrot stick snacks or fat carrot “coins” to lightly steam, sauté or stirfry.
