What are the pros? tasty

What are the cons? some sent up unbrels from seed

Review:

these are lovely carrots...i can tell mine had the potential to be long and delicious carrots but because i didn't thin the chards and beets in my scattered garden around them they probably had to compete too much for light and space...those that grew their roots went long but didn't grow much thicker than a thin pencil some with stubby tops...they are hairy and so i wouldn't eat them straight from the garden but are yummy once peeled...didn't harvest enough to try them cooked but hoping to next year...will add these to my collection of purple carrots to grow

What are the pros? Amazing dark purple color

What are the cons? OK flavor

Review:

These are so fun - my young daughter ends up with purple smeared all around her mouth when she munches on one. The taste is fine, not the sweetest of my carrots but will absolutely keep growing for the awesome color. Yes, they are hairy. Same experience with the (also deeply colored) pusa red. I just shave the hairs off with the side of a knife, or peel.

Dark purple fun

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.

Great Carrot

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.
