Amazing color and flavor, potentially the world’s richest plant-based source of anthocyanin. So rich in the dark pigmented antioxidant that the roots are practically black! It is especially well suited for the south and performs better than other carrots in extreme heat, though it tastes better when harvested in the fall or winter. Richer and sweeter flavor than a regular “orange” carrot and the color deepens as carrots mature, even bleeding like a beet when cut. An amazing carrot from India.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? bitter in warm climate

Review:

I garden in North Florida and it's tough to find carrots that will grow here without becoming bitter by maturity. After years of searching, I finally found a good tasting orange carrot and hoped to add a purple carrot to the mix. With this carrot being developed in India I had high hopes. Unfortunately, this carrot is bitter in my climate, too, For those of you who do like this carrot, I did get very good germination from the packet although it was marked low germination like everyone else. I mixed up a packet of unflavored gelatin with 4 cups of water and chilled until it was a thick slurry. I added 1/2 teaspoon kelp powder and stirred in the seeds. I then refrigerated overnight. The next day I poured the mixture into a zip lock bag, cut a tiny piece off the corner, and squeezed the seeds into moist soil, covering shallowly. I kept the ground moist with a soaker hose and ended up with probably 60% germination, enough that I had to thin a 40 food row heavily.

What are the pros? Color and flavor!

What are the cons? Low germination

Review:

I planted these in a backyard raised bed garden the first year Baker Creek offered them. I only got about 4 carrots out of the packet. This could have been my amateur gardening skills, but I also know they packet warned of some germination problems. But the carrots that did grow were deep purple, all the way to the heart. They stained my fingers and tongue, and I ate them right out of the garden. They had a sweet carrot taste, and I would definitely grow them again.

What are the pros? the best purple carrot

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

Afganistan carrot includes more anthocianyn than "orange-with-purple" varietes. Baker creek has two Afganistan varietes, this one is the beat. It is the sweetest and the darkest. We need more seeds, neighbours also ask to attend it.

What are the pros? Some root knot nematode resist

What are the cons? None

Review:

I usually have problems growing carrots in my root knot nematode infested soil. This carrot did much better than the orange colored ones. The flavor is sweet and is a tender carrot great for baking. I definitely recommend it.
