Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Atomic Red Carrot Seed
(75 days) Red carrot color madness! This carrot is just so much fun and brings out the kid in everyone. It is red! Yep, not orange, but RED! Add the Atomic Red carrot to our Cosmic Purple carrot in a salad and the kids will think they are eating a bowl of Fruits Loops! It gets better though: the Atomic Red carrot gets its great color from healthful Lycopene.
Lycopene credited for helping prevent several types of cancer, and is a proven antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which may damage the body's cells. Ongoing preliminary research suggests that lycopene is associated with reduced risk of macular degenerative disease, serum lipid oxidation and cancers of the lung, bladder, cervix and skin.
Atomic Red carrot is at its best when cooked as this helps to make the lycopene more available to your body. Atomic Red carrot has 10” long tapered roots. Sure to please you and the kids!
