Harvesting: For best flavor and texture, harvest carrots any time before, and until they reach their optimal size. Peak harvest period lasts about 3 weeks, longer in the fall. Late summer-sown carrots are sweetened after having been kissed by light frost; however, harvest before soil freezes, which may destroy the crop. In USDA zone 5 or warmer, carrots can be left in the ground for storage provided they are heavily mulched; harvest as needed on days the ground is not frozen.

I tried a few rows of this variety pack this year and will sow more next year! The color was beautiful in rice, salads, and stir fry dishes and of course, the taste was excellent as well. The white carrots got much larger than the other colors, but they held well in the ground when I was waiting to use them.

These grew really well and were a huge hit with everyone. They taste great in addition to being fun. The packet I got had more white and orange than yellow, red and purple, but with some strategic harvesting, I was able to give away some very colorful bags of carrots as well as make some really pretty salads.
