75 days. One of the darkest carrots available from skin to core. A delicious raw or cooked carrot that is so dark. It’s also used as a dye. Makes a stunning dark puple drink when juiced, and when a squeeze of lemon is added, turns bright pink. Amazingly, it retains its color after cooking and is incredibly high in anthocyanins. If left in the garden, it makes an equisite white umbel tinged with lavender.

What are the pros? Dark purple color

What are the cons? Lots of root hairs

Review:

Very fun purple carrot that is not orange in the center. Kids love the color. Our 17 month old kept asking for more "Blue! Blue!" at the dinner table. Small carrots / thinnings tend to be mostly white in the center, but the more mature ones will be mostly dark purple.

What are the pros? color

What are the cons? very hairy, a bit soapy

Review:

Mine had almost no white core. They really were almost black. I found they tasted a bit soapy raw, I preferred them cooked. Don't know if the hairiness is genetic or related to growing conditions. Didn't especially like that characteristic, but that's not enough to keep me from growing these again.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, large

What are the cons? None.

Review:

These are large carrots, and mine were so dark they looked black with a solid black core. Taste is mild and not overpowering. They are frightfully ugly right when pulled out. I felt like a I pulled out a monster, but we were all impressed with the result and taste. Interesting experience on a salad.

What are the pros? long carrot and deep color

What are the cons? none

Review:

I just pulled a pile of these. they were all very looooong and slim and very deep purple color with a hint of white in the center. They drip near black juice when cut. Yes it colors everything else purple-black. We sliced the whole pile up for the freezer. These should go well with anything dark like black beans or purple cabbage.

What are the pros? reliable, novelty factor

What are the cons? exceedingly hairy

Review:

Carrot that wants to be a red cabbage! Even stains like red cabbage! Stems are tinged with purple. Exterior is pitch-black purple and exceedingly hairy (lots of work to clean). Interior is rather pretty. It looks similar to Gniff Carrot (haven't grown that one yet) except the purple is even deeper and reaches further into the white core. Taste was spicy like Cosmic Purple (my favorite) but much, much juicier (purple juice oozes out similar to red cabbage or red beets). Grew them spring 2018 along with a number of colorful Baker Creek carrot varieties. My spring carrots are usually significantly smaller than my fall carrots. The exception to this rule is Cosmic Purple. Surprisingly, Black Nebula reached sizes pretty close to Cosmic Purple. Just like Cosmic Purple, they were somewhere between Danvers and Imperator in terms of shape and size.
