John Navazio. Sure to be the best selling carrot at
specialty and farmers’ markets. Beautiful red-purple
exterior provides an amazing contrast with the
yellow-orange interior when sliced. Sweet, almost
spicy flavor. 90 days.

frost or as soon as soil can be worked. Tamp
soil firmly; keep bed moist until emergence.
