'Shin Kuroda', or "new Kuroda", is an improved selection of a famous sweet Japanese carrot type, with thick, tapered, blunt-ended root. This variety frequently wins taste tests due to its sweet and overall excellent flavor, not to mention the attractive appearance of its dark reddish-orange roots. It's also a great carrot for any season, thriving even through the heat of the summer. If you haven't tasted this gem yet, give it a try this year!

Our seed comes to us from our dear friend Dr. Kris Hubbard, of Wild Wood Farm in Artemus, Kentucky, a master farmer, storyteller, anthropologist, herbalist, and Indigenous seedkeeper.
