Purple Carrots

← Part of Vegetables, Gourmet Vegies Supa Vege

It’s a fact of life, “fresh is best”.  There is simply no better way of having fresher vegetables packed with nutrients and fibre, than harvesting them right from your very own garden. Pohlmans Gourmet Vegetables® Carrot Purple is a unique gourmet carrot that brings distinct health benefits to the table.  This first ever hybrid carrot is rich purple on the outside with a bright orange core, providing high volumes of beta-carotene and antioxidants.  A nantes-type carrot, with strong growth and a deliscious sweet flavour, it is great for kids and good for juicing.

 Care: Ideally, plant into a garden bed which is fertile, enriched in organic matter, and well drained.  Mulching is recommended to help conserve water.
