This is the incredible work of Pritam Kalia in India. He has been extremely dedicated with his friends creating new open pollinated varieties for small farmers and subsistence growers so that they can have better nutrition. Pritam's work places him as an anomaly among plant breeders, who for the most part are overtly concerned with creating hybrids and seeds that are often off limits to the poor. Pritam focused his efforts on producing nutrient rich varieties. This Pusa Asita Black carrot is one of his masterpieces! So rich in Anthocyanins that it is practically black! This is an open pollinated marvel that you should try to produce your own seeds for because it is rare and precious. It seems especially well suited for the south because it is presumably better adapted to shorter days. It tastes richer than a regular "orange" carrot, and is likely much more nutrient packed with anti-oxidants! Simply Amazing, three cheers for Pritam Kalia! PLEASE Try to SAVE some of your carrots for SEED, AND THEN SHARE THEM!

Review:

Beautiful carrot ! We planted for Fall 2014 and have harvested only a few for tasting, the rest will be for seed. What a carrot, intense purple/black color with a rich deep carrot taste. Turned my chicken broth a deep purple. Awesome roasted with other root vegi's.

I planted these today in my greenhouse so there will be no chance of cross pollination! I'm very excited about them.
