The youngest carrots of this strain are generally the sweetest, or if you allow them to remain in the ground outdoors they are also sweeter after a hard frost.
Little Finger Carrots, another French Heirloom, are miniature gourmet baby carrots measuring roughly 3 1/2" long x 1/2" round. It is smooth skinned with a small core. I have found this particular cultivar does best in containers, it is not as prolific or as reliable as some its cousins in the carrot Klan, but it certainly is sweet.
They do not fare well in rocky or heavy soils and will frequently grow in unusual shapes and at times fork off in multiple directions, which is not a desirable trait.
In containers this is not an issue. They also do not store as well as many other cultivars so are best used fresh.
