Daucus Carota var. Sativus
This eye catching open pollinated variety of carrot was developed by Dr.Philip Simon and the staff and USDA ARS in Madison, WI in 2005. It has a deep purple skin, the interior color ranges from orange with a yellow core to solid orange. These carrots can reach up to 12 in. long at full maturity in 60-70 days, but I do my last thinning at 45 days for a delicious baby carrot harvest. The flavor can be described and sweet and spicy but this variety is best grown in cool weather because excessive heat can lead to an unpleasant taste and root issues.

Days to maturity  60-70 or harvest at 45 days for baby carrots
Plant time Spring

Soil temperature 60-85 degrees F
