Lunar White Carrot

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (heirloom)
Here is a vigorous producer that has creamy-white roots that are very mild, delicious, and have a fine flavor, and very small core. White carrots were grown in the Middle Ages, but now have become very rare. The tapered roots have a very mild carrot flavor. Crunchy and crisp, Lunar White carrots make a great addition to a green salad. They can be used in any recipe calling for standard orange carrots, but they are an especially nice addition to a dish whose presentation highlights their clean moon-white color.
