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.

What are the pros? color, superb roasted

What are the cons? Not great raw

Review:

My 5 year old daughter and I planted these this year. We put very little effort into them, simply cleared an area, broadcasted seed, watered until they geminated and weeded a couple times. We have heave clay soil in this area which I haven't made any amendments to yet and these carrots look beautiful despite that! Long, straight, and a beautiful pinkish, purple color. They were just ok raw, but roasting them brought out so much sweetness that my husband swore I added sugar to them. This may be the only variety we plant next year.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Color is only on the outside

Review:

Planted these in a raised bed at my new house because our soil is too compacted at the moment to plant anything in the ground. I've always had to grow veggies in containers before and never grown carrots from seed successfully before these. They sprouted really well and before I knew it, I had more carrots than I knew what to do with. They taste a little bitter when I eat them raw, but I'm not sure if that's just because of the soil mix I used. Don't peel them, since you lose that brilliant red color, just wash and scrub them well to get the dirt off. I was forced to pull the rest out of the ground when it started to get warmer in summer, since the tops were really stressed and infested with aphids down into the crown, but the roots were still perfectly fine. I cleaned and dried them and they've stayed fresh and delicious in a bag in my crisper for months now.

What are the pros? Beautiful, good flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are the only carrots I've been successful in growing in my rather heavy clay soil. No pests bothered them at all, including the fact that deer came in and ate all the tops a couple of times. These babies just kept coming back. They have tremendous carroty flavor, and they are delicious roasted whole.

Wonderful purple dragon carrots. Plant in pots. Don’t thin. Harvest for several months. If you have clay soil this is how to grow wonderful straight carrots
