“purple carrots !?!”

Description from foxhill designs vt: We grew purple carrots in our garden this year. The surprising thing was that the purple was only on the outside. When you cut into them the center is your usual carroty yellow-orange! Some of them are the weirdest shapes, too.

    They look pretty odd! :) Do they taste the same as the ordinary ones? btw, your pick is lovely! Orange and purple together is stunning and I love how you put the purple on the outside only! :)

    I agree… the color blocking looks great! Not always easy to do … depends on the items we select and their photo. This really works and I love the whole fresh pick package!

    They do taste the same as the regular carrots we planted.

    Hey, a fellow gardener! I have not had much luck with carrots. I am thinking of building a raised bed and trying one last time. Very cool to hear about the purple carrots. Great pick.

    Love the vivid colors in your pick and the story from your garden ! The first time I bought purple “green” beans, I was a little dissapointed that they were just green after they were cooked – - -

    I had the same experience with the purple green beans last summer!
