What Are the Sweetest Carrot Varieties?
I tasted some carrot baby food recently that was absolutely delicious (don't ask why I was tasting baby food!). I am usually so/so on most vegetables and I could not understand how these carrots tasted so sweet. There was no added sugar or other ingredients; only carrots and water.
I guess Beech Nut and Gerber companies grow a special variety(s) to get such sweet carrots. I think if I grew some delicious carrots like these, I'd be more apt to eat them than the ones in the grocery produce section.
Can anyone suggest some carrot varieties that might taste like the sweet ones used in baby food? I have already read somewhere that soil conditions and cool weather may affect carrot taste. If you have any tips for soil and weather, please share :-) But I'm guessing specific carrot varieties are also a must.
