Don't peel it! I made that mistake.:)
How delightful and delicious!
Wow, almost a rainbow carrot. Very cool!
They are lovely Hazel, I'd love to have a go at them. Do they taste any different at all?
I've never seen them in that colour red.
Do they retain the red colour when they are cooked or are they like the purple beans that turn green when cooked.
Lovely! I grew some multi-coloured heirloom carrots around two years ago, saved some seed and when they grew..I had a whole bed of white carrots! True story. Next time I'll let one of each colour go to flower and save all the colours..not just white!! Your red one looks gorgeous. :)
Well, this beauty stirred up a bit of interest didn't it? I ate it raw so I don't know if they change colour when cooked. It was cut up into fine julienne slices in a salad and it tasted carrotty...but was lost in the salad a bit. I will make sure to taste the next one more carefully. Trouble is I had a look today and I don't think there are anymore red ones in the garden.
I've never grown red carrots. This is the first year I'm even seeing them. They look very pretty, and I'll bet they taste great too!
Hazel, did that red carrot come from a mixed packet, or can you buy seeds for carrots that are all red? They do look attractive. Why don't you grwo some of those lovely blue carrots I blogged about before Christmas???
I grew the red carrot (sadly I think there was only one) from a mixed packet of heirloom seeds ordered through Diggers. There is a link to Diggers Club in my sidebar. They were the most reliable geminators this year. They have also grown quickly. I have re=sown four times now with Nantes and some others that slip my mind at this moment. I will buy lots of heirlooms next time and collect seed too.
First time for me to see such specimens... I am quite amazed...
WOw Hazel! I just came across your blog and I have never seen such "pretty" veggies!!!! You do have quite a green thumb!Very sweet blog:)
Those are really nice colors! I would like to have some of those in my garden
Beautiful colour - they would look great in any recipe!
Such pretty carrots! I found your blog on the blog hop party, just joined. I look forward to visiting your blog often. Living in So. CA we grow many of the plants that you do.Carla
Hazel,Oh those do look so good. Maybe someday we'll have great looking carrots like those. Meg planted some last fall in the cold frame they are growing ever so slowly.
Thanks for visiting. I love messages so write as much or as little as your want.
