Description: These small rounded carrots add a gourmet touch in the kitchen, particularly for rustic country recipes from France and Italy. The small nature of Tonda di Parigi carrots also solves the problem of growing in heavier soils, where traditional carrots tend to become stunted.
This is an old French heirloom and is synonymous with the variety known as Paris Market.
