Purple Dragon Carrot

Gorgeous reddish-purple exterior is smooth and very attractive—unusually refined appearance. The purple outside makes a nice contrast with the brilliant orange interior, especially when served as slices on relish tray, platters and more. Roots typically reach 7-8" in length; half-long root habit means you can get well-formed roots even in somewhat tight or heavy soil. Flavor is spicy-sweet and wonderfully complex—wonderful for snacking, and kids really seem to love them! The anthocyanin-rich purple coloration is a valuable bonus, and the roots contain lots of lycopene as well. Bred by Dr. John Navazio.

Review:

These germinated well at my elevation but did not grow very big. Most were 4" in length, with a couple around 7". I believe I overcrowded them. Will try them again next year and give more space. Direct sow April 22nd, pulled all after the first frost Sept 30th.

Review:

I have grown this variety for a few years now and love both the taste and color. It is unique in both. It is sweet with a hint of unique spice, not hot spice just spice. I grow these on a deeper pot with no trouble at all. Enjoy these if you haven't given them a try!

Review:

We planted 3 separate varieties, hoping to get some carrots at our new property, but we honestly didn't expect to get any due to the ground being so rocky. We are in the Ozarks, zone 6b. So we started using the Back to Eden method by adding a thick layer of hay last fall and we planted the carrots this spring. We planted muscade, cosmic purple and this one (purple dragon). The muscade were thick and short, very rooty, with a unique floral aftertaste...but they did not grow well. This variety was the only one to germinate well and grew perfectly normal! The carrots are long and thick. Some did split, but we got heavy rains for a bit, and maybe we had too much nitrogen for them in the compost we added. Either way, we are very pleased with them. The taste is very strong, since we just harvested in the heat of the summer, but we plan to plant more for a fall harvest. I am sure they will taste great! Thank you Baker for providing us with seeds that perform well in our soil!!

Review:

I threw some seeds in a pot in late summer for a late fall harvest. I am terrible at root vegetables because I can't peak! I made it into late fall before I couldn't wait any longer to harvest. They weren't as large as they could have gotten but since it had frosted several times but it was starting to frost so they weren't going to get much bigger anyway. Now, I don't care much for carrots, at least any I have ever bought from any store, but these carrots changed my mind. They have a lovely spiciness to them that balances their natural carrot sweetness. They are fantastic fresh and cooked. There is still some of the spice when cooked, but they take on more of a regular carrot flavor...but complex. Germination rate was fairly high (not as high as "short 'n sweet"). And is a visually pleasing carrot.

Review:

This is my favorite carrot. I grew 4 different kinds and these were the best. Taste was somewhat sweet but delicious, size was everything from medium to extra large with no difference in taste or texture which is very crisp. Stores very well like typical carrots. Germination was also the best out of the 4. I would say more than 90% produced. The appearance is like no others. Very beautiful just don't scrub to hard when washing because that purple will scrub off. Harvesting time is average. I will grow these in my garden every year.
