Pritam Kalia, a world renowned vegetable breeder, created this amazing red variety. His work centers on creating nutritious and hardy vegetables for India's poor subsistence farmers. This particular variety is very high in beta-carotene and Joe believes also lycopene. This carrot is sure to become a favorite heirloom around the world as it is simply beautiful and delicious! This amazing variety of carrot was brought to us by botanical explorer Joseph Simcox.

What are the pros? Delicious fall crop

What are the cons? Did not germinate in spring

Review:

This was a delicious carrot! After having a zero germination rate in the early spring, I tried again in late July for a fall crop. I'm so glad I did! These grew well in the late summer and were delicious in November. They also grew deeper than any others I've tried in my clay soil.

What are the pros? Beautiful color

What are the cons? Bitter until exposed to frost

Review:

We live in a hot dry northern desert in zone 5. These carrots were slow to germinate and get going. Planted in mid-July, and a second crop in mid-Aug. Initially, they were disappointing, very small and VERY bitter. But I left them in the ground under mulch, harvested them after a couple of light frosts...delicious raw or roasted! We had unusually cold weather for 2 weeks (5 degrees F), harvested some more when they were frozen through (blocks of ice!) I just let them thaw and they were sweet, tender, and really delicious either raw or roasted. The red color with orange and yellow carrots is beautiful. If you can wait to harvest until they receive a couple of frosts you won't be disappointed! You'll enjoy excellent carrots all winter. Leave them in the ground under thick mulch and they should survive until spring. If you tried them and were disappointed, give them a second try!

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? Everything else

Review:

What were these like? I don't know; only one matured enough for me to even get a usable root, and by that time, it was tough and woody. To be honest, we had a tough summer. We shot straight up from freezing to 100 degrees in 10 days. (If you don't believe me, look up some horror stories of gardening in Reno.) Once temperatures topped 90, all my Pusa Rudhiras bolted. All but the one that grew so slowly that I pulled it when it was over-mature. I would not grow these again. If you don't live in a temperate climate, choose a yellow carrot or a scarlet nantes instead.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? bitter, hairy

Review:

Easy enough to grow but would advise harvesting and eating these carrots when they are small. Even when small the carrots had a bitter taste that was not good. When larger, they became quite hairy and grew multiple legs and the bitterness seemed more pronounced. They can also become kind of woody when large. They almost seem like a fodder carrot and I will not plant them again.

What are the pros? Sweet flavour

What are the cons? A little rooty.

Review:

Maybe I just struck lucky but these carrots were the sweetest I've ever grown or tasted. We had an unusually hot fall here in TN so many of my fall carrots took too long to germinate so I replanted. The heat didn't seem to bother the Pusa Rudhira, and while the others have still weeks to go, I just pulled these up today. I've never liked the taste of other reds and purples, unless cooked with honey but these raw were so good! Again, maybe I just got lucky, as the other reviewers seem to have different results. I'll try again in the spring and see if the resluts are the same. Definately worth a go though! And the colour is beautiful, all the way through.
