‘Dragon’ Carrots

Tried out a new carrot variety, from High Mowing Seeds, called ‘Dragon’.  It has beautiful reddish-purple skin.

The interior is yellow and orange.  Flavor is good.  It must be, because about 1/4 of the carrots were eaten by moles.  They tunnel through the ground and probably get pretty excited when they come to the carrot patch.  They leave behind wilted tops and chewed-off carrot nubs.

The catalogue description says Dragon ‘has an equivalent lycopene content to tomatoes’.  We’ll have a few bunches at market this week.  See if you like them.
