What are the pros? Colour, flavour, germination
What are the cons? Bolted
I grew 3 types of carrots this year: these, Cosmic Purple (which I got as a free sample), and St. Valery. I couldn't figure out why there was Queen's Anne Lace in my raised bed. Turns out it was these Spanish Black carrots. At least half of them had bolted by mid-July - and we've had a cool, rainy summer. The flavour is interesting and I hope I get enough to try roasting them, but I won't bother with them next year and will just plant Cosmic Purple instead - they were just as yummy, nicely coloured, and didn't bolt.
