(Koyo Nigo (No. 2))
Most carrots grown outdoors are of this variety. Koyo Nigo doesn't have the typical carrot smell. It is also sweeter and tastier than others. Carrots used to be the typical vegetable disliked by children. Now, however, due to the introduction of this variety, carrots can be found on the list of vegetables that children like.
(Beta 312)
This is the main variety for hothouse cultivation. It has a lot of beta-carotene, and is sweet without a strong carrot smell. Both its root and body are dark red. It has minimal root cracking and smooth skin.
