‘Shin Kuroda’ is quite heat resistant, so don’t hesitate to sow in late spring, and even into the summer. Shin means “new” in Japanese, which alludes to its improved, tapered, 5″-long roots with wide shoulders, that grow through heavy soils with ease. A higher moisture content contributes to this carrot’s sweet flavor. A frost-tolerant biennial grown as an annual. Botanical Interests’® Shin Kuroda Carrot Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
