Purple Dragon Carrot

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Gorgeous reddish-purple exterior is smooth and very attractive—unusually refined appearance. The purple outside makes a nice contrast with the brilliant orange interior, especially when served as slices on relish tray, platters and more. Roots typically reach 7-8" in length; half-long root habit means you can get well-formed roots even in somewhat tight or heavy soil. Flavor is spicy-sweet and wonderfully complex—wonderful for snacking, and kids really seem to love them! The anthocyanin-rich purple coloration is a valuable bonus, and the roots contain lots of lycopene as well. Bred by Dr. John Navazio.

What are the pros? Flavor is amazing

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I threw some seeds in a pot in late summer for a late fall harvest. I am terrible at root vegetables because I can't peak! I made it into late fall before I couldn't wait any longer to harvest. They weren't as large as they could have gotten but since it had frosted several times but it was starting to frost so they weren't going to get much bigger anyway. Now, I don't care much for carrots, at least any I have ever bought from any store, but these carrots changed my mind. They have a lovely spiciness to them that balances their natural carrot sweetness. They are fantastic fresh and cooked. There is still some of the spice when cooked, but they take on more of a regular carrot flavor...but complex. Germination rate was fairly high (not as high as "short 'n sweet"). And is a visually pleasing carrot.

Review:

This is my favorite carrot. I grew 4 different kinds and these were the best. Taste was somewhat sweet but delicious, size was everything from medium to extra large with no difference in taste or texture which is very crisp. Stores very well like typical carrots. Germination was also the best out of the 4. I would say more than 90% produced. The appearance is like no others. Very beautiful just don't scrub to hard when washing because that purple will scrub off. Harvesting time is average. I will grow these in my garden every year.

Review:

haven't had great success with carrots in the past but tried this one since i'm newish to baker creek seeds and have loved trying their seeds. they grew like normal carrots, nothing different there, but when i pulled them up, i found beautiful purple carrots that tasted great! i was so pleased. if you scrub them too hard to clean them, the purple will scrub off. i love snacking these lovely carrots.

Review:

I planted mine in the middle of the summer to see if i could get a fall crop (ran out of time with my spring planting). They grew quick and easy. My husband doesn't normally like carrots but he couldn't get enough of these. They were great eaten fresh and there flavor just got better when cooking them.
