The best-tasting orange carrot we have tried, New Kuroda is sugary sweet and the texture is ultra-fine grained. An improvement on the famous Japanese Kuroda type carrot, the roots have a blunt tip and vibrant orange color. This refined root will please even the most discerning palates, but don’t let the silky soft texture fool you — this is a hardy breed. The roots can power through tough soil and blistering heat, producing winning roots under even the most brutal conditions. This Japanese heirloom was bred to withstand tropical heat and therefore is the top spring- or summer-grown variety that we have seen. This may be the best carrot we have tried, period!
