On the basis of organoleptic evaluation out of six carrot (Daucus carota L.) cultivars, Short 'n Sweet, Royal Chantenay, Royal Danvers and Texun were well accepted by a taste panel. The six carrot cultivars were planted at Fortuna Research and Development Center located in the south coast of Puerto Rico. Carrots were sensory evaluated raw and cooked fresh and after storage at 7.2° C (45° F) for 30 days.
