Daucus carota subsp. Sativus ‘Cosmic purple’
A purple carrot? Wasn’t that a purple cow? What will they think of next? Actually, purple carrots have been around forever(900AD) Orange carrots came later.
These fun carrots are purple outside and orange inside. Sweet and juicy they grow to 7 inches. Since carrots like room to stretch make sure your garden bed has looser soil for this one. Before you plant, soak them for 12 hours. Start them in your garden while it is still cool. Plant in a row and thin them out. They take a long time to come up so don’t worry. In about 70 days you can give mom a purple carrot for her salad!
