We found it very interesting that the purple carrot was probably around for 4-5,000 years. Purple was the original color of carrots, and the orange carrot that is common today, wasn’t developed until the 17th century in the Netherlands. We found that the taste of these purple carrots is similar to the orange variety. We have only seen them available from some farm stores. We could not find any nutritional information specifically for purple carrots, so see the nutritional information for Carrots.
Here is a cross section of a purple carrot:
