A delicious North African carrot that produces blocky, 7” orange roots with exceptional flavor and a crisp, crunchy texture. They hold up well at market and are late bolting. Rare and almost impossible to find!

What are the pros? Tasty, large, fun!

What are the cons? None

Review:

I plant these in the spring (heavy, rocky soil) and don't get around to pulling them till fall. Huge, sometimes 'interesting' carrots - some nice and straight and some with arms and legs and everything! Easily over a pound each. Still tender and delicious. One year we planted some early April (great weather that year) and harvested beautiful, crisp carrots mid-June.

Best Carrot Ive Ever Tasted
Easy to Grow 5.0

What are the pros? tender, tastes like perfume

What are the cons? none

Review:

I succession planted these in raised beds, and in among strawberries. They grew well, and I kept them well watered. They were the earliest of all the carrots I grew, and we couldn't get enough. They are blocky, but didn't get too big. They were super tender, and the aroma! It's like perfume, and the taste was like nothing we've ever had before, definitely sweet and floral. I am ordering more next time, cause my only complaint was I didn't plant enough. Zone 6.

What are the pros? Easy germination, taste

What are the cons? Nothing?

Review:

If you're wondering whether or not to buy this carrot, the answer is YES. Buy it! Excellent germination, it's good in heavy soils, and the taste is phenomenal. It takes a long time to mature, but I've grown it in 95 degree weather and 17 degree weather, and it's been keeping on.

Review:

Such a great carrot! I'm not a carrot person - I often think I want to eat them, then lose my enthusiasm once they're on the plate. But these have the perfect touch of spiciness. They're not bitter or sharp, just complex enough to add real interest. They're great raw or cooked. They grow beautifully, too, and seem less fussy about soil, weather, and thinning than other varieties we've tried. It's exciting to pull them and see how gorgeous they are! I hope Baker Creek keeps offering these - we'd miss them if they became unavailable. They've became the only long orange carrot we really want to grow.

What are the pros? Taste, texture

What are the cons? Germination rate

Review:

Maybe it was just me, but the germination rate was poor this time. However, we do have very rocky ground, so this is the first year in this garden and we are working on building the top soil (Back to Eden method). We are in zone 6b and planted in the spring for a summer harvest. I think I am out of seeds, but I am thinking about trying again for a fall harvest. I will say though, the flavor alone is worth trying again, especially knowing that it had such a sweet taste when harvesting in July! The taste is very much like a carrot, but with such a unique aftertaste that has floral overtones. It's hard to describe, but you feel like you just tasted a heavenly delicacy! I will definitely add this to my list to try again at some point! P.S. For those with rocky ground - the purple dragon carrot performed amazingly well for us! The taste does not compare to this one in the summer though, not yet sure on the fall flavors...
