Description

Put some “wow” on your dinner plate! Wildly technicolor carrots reach 8”, have bright purple skin with interior flesh in shades of yellow and orange. So cool-looking, even kids will eat them! Deeper colors mean more carotene, lycopene and antioxidants. Carrots require light and fluffy soil – add sand and coco-fiber to loam to lighten it. Frost-hardy.
