With their natural sugar content, carrots often don't even seem like a vegetable. The fun in growing carrots is the expectation. Until you pull it out of the ground, you don't really know what you have.

You won't find a colorful array of carrots on the grocery shelf, but in the 'Kaleidoscope' blend, shown here, Burpee has combined seeds of 4 fanciful carrot colors: red, yellow, orange and purple. Make carrots fun and they could become your kids' favorite snack.
