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? 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.

Sweet surprise.

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.

Bolted too early...

What are the pros? germination was good

What are the cons? every single one bolted early

Review:

What a waste of Garden space and money. I planted two varieties of carrots. This variety... they all bolted. The other variety still has nice lush vegetation and still growing, no bolting. I have never had carrots to bolt like this in this region.

What are the pros? Beautiful dark red color

What are the cons? Bolted early

Review:

I wanted to try a new and different variety this year so I thought I would try the Pusa Rudhira. Unfortunately I was greatly disappointed because the carrots kept bolting too early. The carrots received p!enty of water because I have a drip system on a timer. Our summers are pretty hot (average in the low to mid 90's) with low humidity. I didn't care for the bitter taste when eaten raw either. They are also have a lot of roots on them when pulled.
