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? no forks

What are the cons? tasteless

Review:

This was the only carrot that held its shape for me. But, it is absent of taste. Koral and Jaune Obtuse du Doubs were much better tasting given the same growing conditions that I experienced.

What are the pros? easy to grow - great taste

What are the cons? none

Review:

This carrot grows well in central Texas. I'm not sure how large the carrots could grow, the kids LOVE these and eat them just as soon as possible, so they might get bigger but I usually get a medium size. Great to eat fresh, tops aren't bitter and good in salads as well.

What are the pros? Lots of Seeds

What are the cons? Couldn't Get it to Grow

Review:

Ordered these early this year and I was really excited for this product, and I thought the pictures were all so pretty. I haven't grown carrots before, so maybe it's my fault but I just couldn't get these to grow. I tried in the ground, in a pot, in a covered pot, everything I could think of and I never even saw sprouts. I'll probably try again with the seeds I have left, as they do give you a LOT of seeds which I appreciate. Wish I could give these a better review.

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.
