Description
Henderson's 'Tendersweet' Carrot

75 days — 'Tendersweet' carrot plants have a distinct, dark purplish-green foliage. When the roots reach full maturity, they are a deep orange color, average from eight to ten inches in length, and taper slightly from the shoulder to a blunt end.

Introduced in 1928 by Peter Henderson & Co., they exclaimed:
"The Sweetest, Tenderest and Hardiest Red Carrot Grown — An outstanding sort for the home gardener because it represents quality at its zenith. It is a favorite with the market grower because its beautiful orange-red color and attractive appearance sells it on sight."[1]
Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 600 seeds.
