This special carrot variety ‘Tonda di Parigi’ (Italian for “Round of Paris) is deep orange, sweet and tender, and the round shape is a unique feature among carrots. Shallow roots mean you can grow it in a shallower bed or even in a container! A frost-tolerant biennial groan as an annual. Roots are 1″-2” long at their peak. A good variety for small containers and heavy soils. Botanical Interests’® Tonda di Parigi Carrot Seeds are USDA Organic and have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.

What is an heirloom seed?
An heirloom variety is one that has been passed down from generation to generation. Generally, the variety must have been around for at least 50 years. They are open-pollinated, which means they have been exposed to natural pollination methods like insects or winds. They aren’t hybrids or genetically modified.
