The Purple Haze is a modern carrot variety which combines a good taste with striking looks. Good for creating a new twist on popular dishes, this carrot is best eaten raw or only lightly cooked to retain the colours.

Growing[edit]

Sow seeds thinly in rows 30 cm (12 in) apart. Cover lightly with 1.5 cm (half inch) of fine soil. Firm gently and keep moist. For continuous crops sow every 2-3 weeks. When harvesting select young carrots alternately from the row, allowing the remainder to develop fully. No other thinning is needed if sown thinly. Keep well watered to prevent roots splitting.
