What are the pros? reliable, novelty factor
What are the cons? exceedingly hairy
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.
