Check out these carrots

I'm planning on having my first garden as most of you know. Anyway, I was looking at a garden catalog and check out these cool carrots. I think I'm going to have to buy some.

sure would and did you notice they each had different flavors....spicy, sweet. The only thing I can figure is they played around with bell peppers and carrots and came up with this.

The original wild carrot was a dark purplish color. Read here for the history of the carrot:

Those are also known as heirloom carrots, becoming quite popular since the recent boom of heirloom tomatoes.
