For those who thought carrots were exclusively orange, Black Nebula will come as a surprise. The deep purple shade of its roots goes right through to the core, and the slightly sharp, earthy flavour changes to sweet as the sugars concentrate with cooking. Absolutely gorgeous in mixed roast veg combos, or simply boiled up as a side dish like regular carrots. Plus, there's an added health kick in any purple veggie thanks to the high concentration of antioxidants. All in all, it's a must-try!

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    To ensure that your carrots grow straight and reach their full length, it is important to work the soil thoroughly to at least a foot deep prior to sowing. Build raised mounds along row lengths to the height of about 15cm, sprinkle seeds and then cover lightly. Keep soil moist and do not allow it to dry out and go hard as this will stop the carrots from breaking the soil. Sow successive plantings in a sunny spot for carrots all year.

    How to Harvest

    Harvest baby carrots when big enough to eat so as to thin out the remainder of the crop to grow to full size. To store carrots, break off the stems but do not wash the carrots. Then place them in damp sawdust. Carrots can also be left in the ground over winter in warmer climates.

    The tips of the leaves are just out of the soil. Excited to taste them in a few month's time.
