Black Nebula Carrot

Rating:
85% of 100

75 days. One of the most darkest (and antioxidant rich) carrots we have seen, with an incredibly deep purple color. Roots are sweet, finely flavored with hints of wild berry taste in their flavor. This superfood treasure was originally selected and improved from some traditional carrots found in a market in northern India, and by selecting for the darkest roots, this variety is now one of the blackest carrots available from skin to core.

This fine carrot is delicious raw or cooked! It’s also used as a dye, and it makes a stunning dark purple juice. Add a squeeze of lemon to turn juice bright pink. Amazingly, it retains its color after cooking and is incredibly high in anthocyanins and a 100 gram serving provides more than half of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. If left in the garden, it makes an exquisite white, flower umbel tinged with lavender. A supremely sweet and heat-tolerant carrot.
