In a Word: Carrots

Carrot mix organic heirloom seeds available for purchase from Cubits

Here’s something to know about me. I love petite carrots. I do not love baby carrots or full-size carrots. Nope, they have to be ‘petite’. Petite carrots are the same shape (tapered end) as regular carrots but really small. Baby carrots are just chunks of regular carrots that have been rounded. It’s like the food industry is trying to trick me by calling it a ‘baby’ carrot. They should call it ‘chunk-o-carrot’ because that’s what it really is. AmIright?
