Description from Comstock Ferre & Co.
This variety grows partly out of the ground, which portion will turn light green. The roots are very large and are creamy white in color. This historic variety was developed from the Long White carrot, an ancient variety that was common in Europe. This carrot was extensively grown as a livestock crop due to its large size and ease of production. In 1885 Vilmorin said, “There is hardly any farm on which it is not grown to some extent for feeding cattle, and especially horses.”
