What are the pros? Easy to grow, large size, yum
What are the cons? Stains everything dark purple
These carrots were very easy to grow, and seemed to have a higher germination rate than the advertised 40%. They grew very straight, and even the largest ones that hid in the garden were still delicious and not woody. The purple color is striking, but when cooked with other foods it turns them an unsettling purple. We made a stir fry with eggs, and the eggs were an odd purple-gray. It also stained my hands and towels purple, like mulberries. I would happily grow this in my garden again, and use it in carrot only dishes to highlight the color, and not make the other foods unappealing to look at.
