Carrot GVS 10070 F1 Hybrid. Always considered an Imperator type. Jumbo/Cello snack pack types are basically Imperators. The classic cello is 8-9” long and 1-1 ¼” wide at the crown. The “jumbo” part just means that if you give the roots enough space and time they can bulk up, beyond classic cello proportions. Legend is on the jumbo end of the jumbo/cello spectrum. It probably averages an inch longer and a quarter inch wider than the leading cello types (Maverick).
