Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DAUCUS carota 'Purple Haze'
Carrot, Purple Haze Carrot
Purple-skinned with orange interiors, the long, plump, tapered roots of this All America Selection are colorful as well as tasty. Plants grow from seed to harvest in about 75 days, yielding sweet, succulent, classically proportioned carrots.
The cultivated carrot is a hardy herbaceous biennial of Eurasian and North African origin. It is grown for its crisp, sweet, tasty taproot. If its roots are not harvested, it produces lacy, white, umbrella-shaped flower-heads the following summer.
Carrots are easy to grow if given deep, rich, friable soil and full sun. They keep well after harvest. In temperate areas with warm, moderately long summers carrots can be planted in spring for a summer harvest and then again in late summer for a fall harvest. Purple Haze carrots make great culinary conversation-starters, either as crudités or in stirfries. They lose their purple color when boiled.
