Spanish Black Carrot

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This wonderful dark carrot, is one of the old world carrots that are black/brown. The Black Spanish Carrot is whitish fleshed from the information we have from the grower. It is a very rare variety that is almost endangered even in Europe. Seed production takes two seasons. If you can store the carrots over winter in a cool place they will flower the next summer and produce seeds.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? Goes right to seed, no carrot

Review:

Yes grows easy, but it seems just like most people I had same problem, no carrot because it went to seed. But the Pusa Asita Black carrot did very good, carrots were from deep dark purple to some even looking black all the way, even the core of carrot very dark in color. So if you want a dark carrot try Pusa Asita Black carrot - order# 130. I will plant the Pusa Asita Black carrot again but very unlikely I will ever try Black Spanish carrot again.

Review:

It sounds like I got the same seed the other reviewers had. These carrots were the first to germinate so I was super excited, but then they went to seed really fast. The "carrot" part was just a woody, carrot scented, white root, no purple color at all! I don't know if there was a mix up with this batch or what, but I'm disappointed I wasted several carrot rows with this variety.

What are the pros? Good germination

What are the cons? There was no carrot!

Review:

I'm really confused by this "carrot". The description says that seed production takes two seasons, which is typical for carrots, but mine set seed within three months. Also, there was no root at all. What was there was white and anemic. The only thing carroty about it was the smell. I'm starting to wonder if I got a package of queen anne's lace by mistake. I had high hopes for this vegetable, but it wasn't meant to be. The only good thing about this plant was the close to 100% germination.

Just awful

EarlyMaturity 1.5
 

What are the pros? Nothing

What are the cons? Fibrous, flowered immediately

Review:

These all started putting out flowers after a couple months, with only the tiniest, chewy, stringy root, nothing like a carrot. The Danvers 126 and Parisienne planted in the same bed are progressing normally. Let this rare carrot go extinct.
