More About Purple Carrots:

We found it very interesting that the purple carrot was probably around for 4-5,000 years. Purple was the original color of carrots. The orange carrot that is common today, wasn’t developed until the 17th century in the Netherlands. We found that the taste of these this variety is similar to the orange variety.

Unfortunately, we have only seen them available from some farm stores. We could not find any nutritional information specifically for this specific variety. We suggest seeing the nutritional information for orange variety.

We wonder if there is any connection between the skin color of these carrots and the purple center flower found in the wild carrot (Queen Anne’s Lace). If you are not familiar with what we are referring to, please see the wild flower section in our art and photo collections.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
