Carrot, Purple Dragon
Fun fact – carrots were originally purple. Orange carrots only became popular once bred by the Dutch growers as a tribute to William of Orange. These quirky carrots range in colour from dark purple to red, orange and yellow. A must-grow variety for roasting whole or for kids to enjoy.
