70 days. What will they think of next?? Here is the first-ever hybrid purple Carrot — a return to the distant past when wild carrots were naturally purple. Very vigorous and easy to grow, this delicious vegetable will be the centerpiece of your garden and the talk of the neighborhood!
Purple Haze is a Nantes-type carrot, with strong growth and a delectable sweet flavor. Its rich purple color extends only as far as the core, which remains bright orange. And it tastes just like ordinary orange carrots . . . but you don’t have to tell the kids that!
Purple Haze has been awarded a 2006 All-America Selection for its remarkable return to the original color of wild carrots, and I’m delighted to be able to offer it here in Park. To take advantage of its bright purple color, serve it raw, for cooking will dull it (though the flavor will still be splendid!). And if you’re looking for more “wild” colored Carrots, take a look at amazing new Rainbow! Pkt. is 1/32 oz. at least 400 seeds.
