This one is causing excitement at farmers’ markets. Carrots have bright purple skin and flesh that comes in shades of yellow and orange. Spicy and sweet-tasting roots are great for marketing.

What are the pros? Amazing taste and color

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted these for the first time last summer in our upstate New York garden and I am definitely planting them again this growing season. I sprinkled the seeds in our horse manure soil and I swear every one of them germinated. I had a hard time thinning the carrots out, so I ended up leaving them and picking the biggest ones as they matured. The smaller ones then had more space to grow and continued doing so. Result: a steady stream of these beautiful carrots all summer long. The carrots are perfect freshly picked from the garden and eaten on the spot or chopped into a salad, adding a splash of color to the greens.

The Best Carrots Ever
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? The fantastically SWEET flavor

What are the cons? None!

Review:

This is hands down the best flavored carrot we have ever grown. They attained good size in some cases got huge. There were a few that cracked, but not many and we felt it was more do to our late digging and the weather. With the ones that got huge, my first thought was, well, these are going to be too woody to eat...but not so. They were still great and no woody stringy core. The flavor was incredibly sweet with spice like subtle accents, I started out canning them, but think I will switch to freezing as the canning process took away some of the sweet flavor....still good, but these gems are so fantastic that I will give up the freezer "real estate" for them!

What are the pros? Colorful, unique flavor, hardy

What are the cons? Tops weak and brittle

Review:

Planted these in zone 4 around the 1st week of June. Made sure to pay attention to spacing this year, since last year I didn't and ended up with scraggly, inedible little things. This year was one of the hottest and driest yet. I was good at keeping them watered at first, but slacked off once they got going and on through the hottest part of summer. I dug trenches, filled with horse manure and tamped down so they would get length. Let them go until October. I will admit, this variety was the only one that the TOPS were wilted and weak compared to other varieties I planted (tops were purplish, which may have something scientific to do with it). This did not effect the carrot's performance, it just meant I couldn't just pull them up out of the ground. Flavor is somewhat spicy and coloring is like a bullseye throughout and is striking shredded in slaws or sliced in stir fry, but tends to lose color when overcooked. This variety is shorter than others, but tend to be fatter. No splits.

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Takes longer to mature.

Review:

These are very sweet and delicious! I have tried other purple carrots before that were bitter but these are not. They do take awhile to mature, at least in my northern region. That's okay with me, I grow other types of carrots along side these and wait to harvest these in the fall.
