Caro Rich Question(s)

mauch1(z6b PA)April 19, 2013

I think I missed getting it for this year, but I'm curious about Caro Rich because of it's supposed higher beta-carotene, but I've seen different descriptions -

Determinate, Indeterminate, and semi-determinate.

Which is it? Or are these different strains of Caro Rich and what was the original? (I know from reading that the one of the genes for the higher level of beta-carotene and determinism are closely linked on the same chromosome (not that they can't be separated, but more difficult))

And how is the flavor of Caro Rich? Good? Bad? OK?

Thanks.
