We love carrots and we love purple! Cosmic Purple is the best of both worlds. So many purple carrots are tough and notably less sweet compared to their orange cousins, making Cosmic Purple all the more exceptional. She’s purple on the outside with a sweet orange core, an absolutely stunning carrot to nourish you with so much more than calories! We’ve found that 7-inch roots are the sweetest, most tender stage for Cosmic Purple carrot.
