A very rare landrace from the Tessin region of Switzerland. These amethyst-colored carrots were rediscovered in the 1950s in the picturesque Alps village of Bre, where local women grew them for sale at farmers markets. “Gniff” is translated to “purple” in the local dialect. Being a landrace, this carrot expresses a range of colors, from its purple exterior to its violet-hued interior. This is a slow-growing storage carrot that is traditionally pickled by steaming, slicing and preserving them in olive oil, parsley, and garlic. A similar type was last described by Vilmorin in 1856 as “sweet, purple carrot with a pale yellow heart.”

A super nutrient-dense heirloom from Europe. Plants are productive and vigorous, with cylindrical, deep orange roots that average 8-9 inches long and resist splitting, even when grown in heavier soils. Its silky-smooth texture makes Koral one of the very best for juicing. This excellent keeper carrot is widely grown in Europe but practically unknown in the USA. Superbly sweet and flavorful for making delicious carrot juice!

Purple Dragon 

$4 per bundle

Gorgeous reddish-purple exterior is smooth and very attractive—an unusually refined appearance. The purple outside makes a nice contrast with the brilliant orange interior, especially when served as slices on relish trays, platters and more. Roots typically reach 7-8 inches long; half-long root habit means you can get well-formed roots even in somewhat tight or heavy soil. The flavor is spicy-sweet and wonderfully complex — great for snacking, and kids really seem to love them! The anthocyanin-rich purple coloration is a valuable bonus, and the roots contain lots of lycopene as well. Bred by Dr. John Navazio.

Uzbek Golden 

$4 per bundle

The delectable, lemon-yellow roots have a unique shape! These carrots have a fine-grained texture that is crispy and juicy with plenty of natural sugar. This variety hails from Uzbekistan and is popular across central Asia. Widely adaptable, this variety produced sweet roots even in the hot summer months during our Missouri greenhouse trials, but it is equally vigorous and tasty when grown in cool weather. Called “Mshak” in Uzbek, this variety is easy to grow in a range of soils and temperatures and the flavor is superb. We love this as a snacking or cooking carrot, and in Uzbekistan and Central Asia it is an essential ingredient in plov, or pilaf, a signature dish of that region.

Kyoto Red 

$4 per bundle

Our Favorite Carrot! Sweet, fruit-like flavor! This is a Japanese Kintoki type (sweet red) carrot. These silky red carrots are grown near Kyoto, Japan, where they are traditionally eaten on the Japanese New Year, often carved into the shape of a plum blossom to represent fertility in the coming year. These carrots have an exceptional texture and a very sweet, slightly watermelon flavor. A perfect variety for late summer, fall, or winter gardening, the bright red color becomes much darker when grown in the winter. (This variety will not do well if planted in the spring.) Long, tapered roots grow to 10 to 16 inches long. These reign supreme as a roasting, grilling, dessert, and fresh juicing carrot! Possibly the finest flavored carrot on the planet!

This well-loved classic is crisp, sweet, and delicious with a high sugar content. It's perfect for juicing, snacking, freezing, and storing. The root matures quickly but is also good when harvested as a baby. Its 6"-7" long root is almost cylindrical and blunt-ended. The fine-grained, red-orange flesh is nearly coreless.
