Carrot Cosmic Purple

  • Unusual tapering, 18cm (7in) purple skinned roots are sweet, tender and flavoursome with coreless orange flesh and are delicious eaten both cooked or raw in a salad.
  • Sow thinly, 13mm (1/2in) deep in broad drills 30cm (12in) apart. Thin seedlings as necessary, probably unnecessary for ‘baby roots’, but to 2.5-5cm (1-2 in) apart for larger roots for storing. Keep well watered for best quality roots. Protect with enviromesh or erect a 50cm (20in) barrier around the crop against carrot fly.
  • Serve boiled carrots with a sprinkling of chopped parsley, a little sugar and ground black pepper. Add raw roots to salads or use with dips to create an attractive and tasty colour contrast.
