Loved buying family owned seeds and doing starters in our house and transferring to our wood boxed beds. All of the seeds we purchased have turned into deliciousness on our nightly dinner table! Look forward to next years crops!
Great. I've been buying seeds from Pinetree for years...just the right amount of seeds for my garden. I planted carrots, beets, lettuce, radishes in the cold frame on April 4th. They have all germinated well. Spinach seeds from another company still haven't yet.
I usually grow 2 or 3 different varieties of carrots every year. Gardening success always has so many variables, but the Tendersweet carrots were nothing short of outstanding when I grew them. They produced well and the size is, indeed, quite uniform. But What They ALL Say, when I share them with my friends and family is that they are the best tasting carrot they have ever eaten. I do not exaggerate when I say that, in some cases, they were eaten without being peeled--I confess, I did it, too. Cannot speak too highly of this variety. I am growing no other varieties this year and have planted extra rows.
I have grown this carrot for 4 years, and am ordering more seeds right now because it puts other carrots to shame taste wise. I have grown many varieties, including the trendy pretty colorful varieties, but hands down, the crunch and unparalleled sweetness cannot be beat! Grow these! Dependable germination with fresh seeds, too. My 4 year old seeds had to be filled in!
Wonderful flavor, always impresses friends to taste great home-grown carrots. Very good keeper in the ground in our part of the country (coastal northern California).
