Daucus carota (hybrid)
‘Rainbow’ is a pleasing mix of colors from coral to yellow to white–a quite unusual variation from just one seed cultivar! Unlike colored carrot blends which produce varied sizes of roots, ‘Rainbow’ carrots are uniform and mature all at once, making. A cross of Nantes and imperator types, the flavorful roots are long, at 7″–9″ at maturity. Botanical Interests’® Rainbow Carrot Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
