There’s been a proliferation of new purple carrot varieties over the past few years and we’ve tried many of them but Dragon continues to be our number one. A gem from John Navazio, Dragon is a showstopper. The 6-7” tapered roots have a stunning deep reddish-purple skin and orange or sometimes concentrically orange and yellow colored flesh. But how do they taste? Our market customers loved them for their sweet, spicy, and full flavor for fresh noshing. These carrots respond especially well to attentive thinning to 2” to produce the most beautiful, uniform, and long roots. Somewhat weaker tops for bunching. Fun for kids but delightful for everyone!
