Imperator carrots are a variety of carrots that came about in the 1920s as a part of American seed growers to mix two different species in a balanced way. They include several different varieties that vary in size from 8 to 11 inches at full maturity.
They have a beautiful color and smooth and easy to pill skin. Their flavor is also sweeter than the flavor of an ordinary carrot which makes them more versatile when it comes to cooking.
