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? Flavor and color.

What are the cons? none

Review:

I planted these about September 2018. I didn't plant as I should have, I broadcast the seed out in a small spot so they were over crowded. They were slow to germinate and didn't do much all winter. Finally here it is March 2019 and I now have some really good carrots. Not all of them matured because as I said I planted to close together and never thinned. I will be buying these again.

What are the pros? Unusual colour

What are the cons? Bad taste

Review:

It is the best variety between anthocianyn "orange-with-purple". But if we would like carotene carrot, we would taste Russian orange varietes (22%), if we would like anthocianyn, we would taste Baker creek's "Pusa Asita" Afganistan carrot. It is impossible to take together carotene and anthocianyn in "orange-with-purple" varietes at that level.

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.
