True to its name, this carrot has a purple exterior, but the flesh is a lovely dark orange with a bright yellow core at the centre. This variety is definitely more colourful than regular carrots, even if you discard the purple skin, and it's known for a rich, slightly spicy flavour that makes it quite distinctive. Although you might start growing it because it looks unusual, you'll keep growing it because Purple Dragon is such a worthwhile carrot variety.

  • 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.
