First the incredible colour – reddish purple skin and a bright orange and yellowish orange core. Carrots have an intriguingly sweet, spicy flavour, approaching nutty when cooked. Easy to grow, purple dragons grow best in loamy, sandy soil, require full sun and must be watered often. Seed a few weeks before your last frost date and carrots will be ready to harvest in 70-90 days. These are reliable growers and a delight to serve from shredded raw to roasted with oil. High in antioxidants.
