Carrot 'Purple Haze' F1 Hybrid

Daucus carota

 Customer Rating

Before 17th Century Dutch breeding, carrots were traditionally purple, red, white or yellow, rather than the orange ones that we know today. Carrot 'Purple Haze' retains this colouring with its deep orange flesh contrasting brightly with a rich purple skin. The smooth roots are long and heavy, reaching up to 25cm (10") in length. This colourful variety is packed with antioxidants and Vitamin A. Carrot 'Purple Haze' is best eaten raw as it has a less intense flavour and colour when cooked or steamed. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 15cm (6").


Companion planting: Try growing carrots with spring onions, leeks and mint, whose aromatic leaves deter carrot root fly.
