Carrot is among the most important root vegetables being grown at larger scale in various districts of Pakistan. This study was envisaged to profile and compare the biochemical and organoleptic/sensory quality of a potential carrot cv. T-29 under four leading carrot growing districts of the Punjab Province (Pakistan) including Nankana Sahib, Sheikhupura, Faisalabad and Gujranwala. Significant differences were found among the biochemical and organoleptic quality of the carrots grown at different agro-ecological conditions. The carrots of district Sheikhupura had better quality as compared to other three districts due to significantly higher ratings of taste, flavour, texture and colour and significantly lower acid contents. Different fields within the same district were also significantly different for quality of carrots. Moreover, significant interaction was also found between growing locations and different fields within the same district.
