Amazing color and flavor! A masterpiece from India. So rich in anthocyanins that it is practically black! It is especially well suited for the south and performs better than other carrots in warm weather, though it tastes better when harvested in the fall or winter. It tastes richer than a regular “orange” carrot and the color deepens as carrots mature, even bleeding like a beet when cut.

Review:

I don't like to discourage people from buying products but I will tell you not to waste your time or money on these seeds. I tried growing these carrots the last two years and no success. Each time I grew these it took over a 100 days and they started flowering. They were white, hairy, and about the size of a pencil. I grow Amarillo, Purple Dragon, and Cosmic Purple carrots without any problems.

What are the pros? Quick growth for kids

What are the cons? Went to seed very quickly

Review:

These were super fast growers. Deep color, rich flavor- not like your typical carrot, more of a peppery flavor. Planted in May and now mid June several of the carrots have flowered already. I pulled up a few of the others and some were really disfigured with several floppy finger looking things coming off the sides. Maybe I let them go too long but it's only been between 4-6 weeks so I'm unsure. We've had a crazy California heat spell so maybe that is a factor but I plan on getting my beds ready for a 2nd round either way! The kids loved these and with the flowers I'll have plenty of seeds for next year!

Review:

I got these seeds because I thought the carrots were beautiful and was curious to see if they would grow here. It is very dry and sandy where I live. I planted these last fall. It took them a while to germinate... so long, in fact, that I thought they were not going to grow, but two did! Because only 2 popped up out of the maybe 6 I planted, I am letting them go to seed. I planted the rest of the pusa seeds in a hugelkultur/lasagna garden bed late this winter and so many have popped up! Which leads me to think that my timing or even the type of bed I planted the first batch in was off. I have not tasted these carrots yet, but I will be able to harvest soon! I am sooo excited! I am about to put a video on youtube (cardinal oak hill farm) showing off these rare seed carrots soon. They are definitely what I am most proud of growing so far.
