Generations of people in the modern world have grown up thinking that carrots have always been orange. But long before the orange carrot became established in the 16th century,  the black carrot was a common vegetable across Asia and the eastern Mediterranean.  Black carrots are still grown and consumed in countries such a Turkey, Afghanistan, Egypt, Pakistan India and the Far East.

Incredible dark purple, almost black colored carrot. The color reaches throughout the root. Roots are 9-10 inches long and tapered. Best when eaten young or roasted, color does not blanch when cooked. These fruits remain purple after cooking. During the spring consider using the roots for egg or fabric dye.
