What are the pros? Taste, texture
What are the cons? Germination rate
Maybe it was just me, but the germination rate was poor this time. However, we do have very rocky ground, so this is the first year in this garden and we are working on building the top soil (Back to Eden method). We are in zone 6b and planted in the spring for a summer harvest. I think I am out of seeds, but I am thinking about trying again for a fall harvest. I will say though, the flavor alone is worth trying again, especially knowing that it had such a sweet taste when harvesting in July! The taste is very much like a carrot, but with such a unique aftertaste that has floral overtones. It's hard to describe, but you feel like you just tasted a heavenly delicacy! I will definitely add this to my list to try again at some point! P.S. For those with rocky ground - the purple dragon carrot performed amazingly well for us! The taste does not compare to this one in the summer though, not yet sure on the fall flavors...
