Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Carrots prefer light, deeply tilled soils with plenty of added organic matter, good drainage, a pH range of 6.0-6.6, and regular water. Apply a mulch layer once established to keep roots cool. Carrots develop best at a soil temperature of 60-70°F.

Planting & Growing: Seed directly 2-3 weeks before the last frost. Carrots germinate quickly at a soil temperatures of 75°F, but will germinate in soils as cold as 45°F just more slowly. Mix the small seeds with dry coffee grounds or sand to improve seed distribution. Over planting requires thinning to provide sufficient growing room.

Harvesting & Storage: If necessary, loosen soil to pull carrots without breaking off tops. Trim off foliage to extend storage time. Layer roots in a container with damp paper towels and store in cool, moist conditions. Also good for canning or freezing.

One Tough Carrot (in a good way!)

When you open the packet, if you are familiar with carrot seeds, you will probably notice immediately that this is something a bit different. The seeds themselves are a little bit bigger, a bit tougher; before these carrots are even in the ground you know they're not your typical carrot.
When they grow the stems of their leaves (which are thicker and sturdier thank most carrots!) are edged and veined with that deep, midnight-purple color, when they flower the edges of the bloom-crowns are tinged in purple, and when you pull them out of the soil? They look almost inky-black! If you wanted REALLY purple carrots - not ones that are no longer purple if you peel them, or turn back to orange if you cook them - you've found them... you may also have gotten more than you bargained for!
When you scrub these under the faucet, the water will wash away in a blueish-purple stream... after peeling them, they can make your fingers look like they are covered in purple and blue bruises... and, if you cut them on wooden cutting-boards, they might even leave a stain!
...all that being said -- I *LOVE* THESE CARROTS!
They are VIGOROUS, they are LARGE, their stems are STRONG (making them easier to pull from the soil), and their color is GORGEOUS!
They make a beef stew look darker and richer! If I grate a smaller one in, they help my bolognese look deeper and meatier (the sauce more deep-red and less pink)! They pop in Shepards Pie or in a Japanese curry - & they cook soft & sweet as any carrot!

Colorful & Spicy

These are the beets of the carrot world! Dark reddish purple, when you wash them you get purple water. They taste like carrots with a radish-like kick. I left some to flower and they made a nice bouquet filler, as well as attracting beneficial insects.

very cool seeds

These seeds look beautiful, nothing like what I expected, and the sprouts are coming up fast! I planted these with my salsify and scarlet nante carrots, very excited for a fun crop of multicolored root vegetables!!!
