75 days. The Cosmic Purple carrot boasts dazzling color and remarkable flavor. Growers will be happy to know that it is a reliable and easy variety. The skin is a deep magenta with a vibrant orange core, and the flavor is sweet and nutty with just a hint of spice. Our customers have even likened the flavor to maple syrup! Cosmic Purple is a winner, thanks to the breeding work of Dr. Philip Simon at the USDA Agricultural Research Station in Madison, Wisconsin, in the early 2000s. Dr. Simon has dedicated over 35 years to researching and breeding carrots. He has developed a highly nutritious rainbow of carrot varieties, including many colors that had not yet been introduced to the Western diet. Market gardeners and farmers will appreciate that Dr. Simon bred this variety to be adaptable and easy to grow. Indeed, Cosmic Purple carrot has been noted as a vigorous grower. A truly colorful carrot, the outer skin is a deep purple to magenta. Just below the skin is an orange core, making beautiful rainbow slaw! The long, slender roots are capable of reaching 12 inches long when grown in optimal soil.
