This unusual variety was a 2006 AAS winner! Deep purple on the outside and bright orange inside, it has a lovely sweet taste especially when raw. Lightly stir-fry to retain a deeper purple colour. We recommend planting Purple Haze carrot seeds after the May long weekend so it does not bolt. The roots are 25-30cm (10-12") long, and slender with a graceful taper. Children love the idea of purple carrots, and appreciate the sweet flavour of Purple Haze. Sow carrots in deeply cultivated soil and apply a specialty carrot fertilizer at planting time. We also like using the Gaia All Purpose 4-4-4 organic fertilizer for carrots.
