Surprise and delight your family with this colorful carrot
Days to Maturity: 75 to 80 from direct sow
Put a spin on a garden vegetable this year with the Dragon Purple Carrot. These deeply hued carrots sport a purple “coat” and reveal a light orange center when sliced.
Carrots are a staple in every vegetable garden, but the unique color of this carrot makes it fun to grow for the entire family. They grow to approximately 6 inches long, producing tops that are 4 to 8 inches tall, and taste notably sweet, making them just as delicious to eat fresh as cooked in your next casserole or soup. So, if you’ve been struggling to get your kids to eat veggies, we challenge you to serve them up some purple carrots. The fun color and sweet flavor make it easy to get kids to gobble ’em up.
These plants are robust and can be started outdoors as soon as the threat for heavy frost has passed. However, carrots can handle a slight frost once they are mature. In fact, allowing plants to get hit with a frost before you harvest them helps sweeten the carrot.
Sow seeds directly into the garden, cover with ⅛-inch of soil, and keep the soil moist.
Plants can also be started indoors and planted outdoors after the risk of frost has passed. If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
