Purple Dragon Carrot

70 days. 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 trays, platters and more. Roots typically reach 7-8” in length; halflong root habit means you can get well-formed roots even in somewhat tight or heavy soil. Flavor is spicy-sweet and wonderfully complex--great 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.

Got these for free with one of my orders & purchased again the next year. These grew wonderfully in the southern clay soil. Flavor was suburb and roots were nice and straight.

What are the pros? big, beautiful, and FAST

What are the cons? seem to be prone to splitting

Review:

Planted these babies in a suboptimal spot (shaded by the tomatoes) in mid-May and was already harvesting big, fat, footlong carrots in mid-July. These things are insane--vigorous, healthy, tasty. Only problem is that they seem to outgrow their skins and split more than the other carrots I'm growing, but that's just cosmetic. Note: only the skins are purple, if you peel them you'll lose the effect (I peel them for soups bc the purple can make a soup look kind of gross). These would be a great crop for impatient kids--very rewarding.

Review:

By far the earliest maturing carrot in my garden. Sowed the seeds late april during a warm spell and have already harvested the first pinky finger sized carrots. Impressive considering with had frosts well into May this year. Very easy to grow and suitable for the novice gardener. Excellent in cold climates.

Review:

We planted 3 non-typical varieties from Baker Creel this year. All are growing decent, but these Cosmic Purples are amazing! They are at least double the size of the other 4, including our normal Danvers. It is still early, and they need at least another month, but they are already delicious. Beautiful to the eye as well.
