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 purple drink when juiced; when a squeeze of lemon is added, it turns bright pink. Amazingly, it retains its color after cooking and is incredibly high in anthocyanins. If left in the garden, it makes an exquisite white umbel tinged with lavender.

What are the pros? Color

What are the cons? Ok taste splitroots

Review:

This was nota good year for my carrots. The purple carrots tended to split. They made an interesting carrot cake. The taste was ok kinda earthy nor refined. I am not sure I would grow them again.

What are the pros? Rich colour

What are the cons? flavour isn't stellar

Review:

I pulled one as it sized up early in the season, and it had an obvious white core. Taste was so-so. I just pulled a bunch to dye some fleece, and they just keep yielding an amazing purple. Time will tell if it's colourfast, but they stain EVERYTHING it touches, even my hands from slicing them. We get plenty of sun here; I found the foliage flopped quite a bit without frequent watering but I got a good yield. Taste was good; I wouldn't grow them for the flavour but I think a few would really liven up a salad. The wool came out soft purple and, true to the description about juice, acid turned it bright pink. Wow!

What are the pros? Unique color, great flavor

What are the cons? I am terrible at growing them

Review:

I tend to have trouble growing carrots to a good mature size, which may be a consequence of the shortened period of full sun available in my garden. Regardless, the small Black Nebulas of Spring where very tasty. Use a cutting board you use for beets. I haven’t gotten enough for juice yet, but I am sure these would be a great addition! Planted more for Fall after tilling again and giving greater row spacing to see if I can go from a baby carrot size to a “real” carrot for Winter.

What are the pros? Beautiful color

What are the cons? N/a

Review:

We started these early this spring and just harvested. We had an unseasonably HOT spring, and these are the only ones of three varieties that did well anyway! They are gorgeous in color and I would definitely recommend them to those in warmer climates

What are the pros? Very Dark Color, Super Interes

What are the cons? Bumpy and Hairy

Review:

It's still early, but we already started harvesting a few. They are super good cooked and raw. Beware, in a chicken roast your drippings and gravy will turn quite dark! Best part is hearing my 4 year old try to say Black Nebula. Hilarious. Downside is they are a bit uneven, bumpy, and very hairy. Not a huge issue, but takes a little more work in the kitchen. Overall I will definitely grow these again. Shameless plug for Baker Creeks Cosmic Purple! Best carrots we have ever grown! Try them!
