Bred by John Navazio of the Organic Seed Alliance, Dragon carrots have a deep purple skin with a flaming orange interior and a bright yellow core. A different flavour than conventional carrots, sweet and almost spicy. Spectacular looking as grated ribbons in a salad. Be careful cooking these carrots, the colour will bleed when boiled turning everything purple!
As soon as soil is warm, plant seeds about 1/4" deep and 2" apart. Carrot seeds are tiny so plant shallowly and keep it consistently moist until the seeds sprout. As they grow, carrots push up and out of the soil, so hill soil up to prevent getting a green shoulder on the carrot. Plant carrots intended for winter storage about 100 days before frost is expected.
