Seasonality: Year Round
With a reputation for unusually high sugar content, these French Nantes carrots are picked very young at the peak of tenderness. The variety is a hybrid finger carrot bred for early color, even cylindrical shape and extraordinary taste. They require no peeling and are prized by professional chefs world-wide for holding their sweet flavor when cooked and also their caramelizing qualities. Baby French carrots can be served raw or cooked; a flavorful ingredient in both soups and salads! Product of California.
Selection & Storage
Choose carrots that are bright and firm; avoid carrots that are dull and rubbery. Carrots keep for up to a month in a dry crisper. Never store ethylene-producing fruit with carrots; the gas turns carrot bitter and inedible.
