Incredible dark purple, almost black colored carrot. The color reaches throughout the root. Roots are 9-10 inches long and tapered. Best when eaten young or roasted, color does not blanch when cooked. These fruits remain purple after cooking. During the spring consider using the roots for egg or fabric dye. When these carrots become to large to eat, let the plants bolt and use the purple colored flowers for cutting. The stems are also purple and attractive.
