Product Overview

Daucus carota

Out of this world! Dazzling purple conceals the beautiful orange, crunchy interior loaded with sweet flavor.

While colored carrots seem to be new to home gardens, they have been around for centuries. In fact, the purple carrot has been around for at least 1,000 years. After losing out to the more popular orange carrots long ago, purple carrots have been rediscovered. Kids will love them as a colorful snack. Besides being high in vitamin A, purple carrots contain anthocyanin (an antioxidant).

Variety Info

Conical roots with long tapered ends, purple skin with orange interior. 'Cosmic Purple' has characteristics of both imperator and nantes types carrots.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended; root disturbance stunts growth.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 45°F, ideally 60°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 10 to 12 weeks before your average first fall frost date. In very warm climates, carrots are grown primarily in fall, winter, and spring.
