If you fancy trying something a bit different, how about growing a purple carrot! This smooth, long rooted carrot has a purple skin contrasting well with a deep orange flesh.
Did you know that before 17th century Dutch breeding, all carrots grown were either purple, red, white or yellow? Carrot Purple Haze has a very sweet taste and looks striking when freshly grated onto salads and is a fun talking point for children’s lunch boxes.
**Brookside Nursery Top Tip - Carrot fly is attracted by the smell whilst thinning so try watering before thinning and doing the job on a still evening. Young Carrots can always be pulled out alternately to 'thin as you eat', leaving the remaining carrots to mature.
