With their orange colour, carrots have always been a cheerful addition to a variety of recipes. As a mini vegetable, mini carrots are even more irresistible. Mini carrots are only 10-12 centimetres long.

The root vegetable that grows underground has a characteristic elongated round root. It tapers towards the bottom. Mini carrots stand out in the vegetable range because of their combination of a crunchy bite and sweet taste.

Growing and harvesting

At the grower's

Cultivation of mini carrots starts with mechanical sowing, in the open field. It takes 6 weeks for the mini carrots to reach their final size (10-12 centimetres). Harvesting is still traditional manual work: the carrots are pulled up from the ground by their fresh green foliage, taking care not to damage the vegetables.

The first port of call is the central hall, where the mini carrots are further processed. All or part of the greenery is chopped off the mini carrots, and after cleaning the harvest is ready for transport to Nature's Pride.
