Imperator carrots have been upheld as the model for the perfect carrot, combining the characteristics of Nantes and Chantenay types with thin skins, blunt ends and a long tap root. Good for fresh eating or storage.
The standard Imperator was introduced in 1928 and an AAS Winner in 1933. Imperator 58 is an improvement on the original bred by Ferry-Morse Seed Company and introduced in 1963.
Direct seed and harvest as baby carrots or at 8-10″.
