750+ ‘Atomic Red’ Carrot Seeds

Daucus carota subsp. sativus

The bright red appearance of Atomic Red carrots is sure to delight at both harvest and dinner time; the color is due to large amounts of an antioxidant called lycopene, also found in tomatoes. Long, slender, and tapered, these carrots maintain their red coloration even when cooked, and are high in vitamins and minerals!
