Once upon a time, carrots came in a wide variety of colours. However, in a stroke of patriotism, 16th-century Dutch growers bred the humble carrot orange. This throwback blend is a kaleidoscope of carrots that add a dash of crazy and a whole lot of flavour to every dish.
When cooked, Atomic Red develops a deep sunset colour and Yellow retains its bright hue. Cosmic Purple has a velvety purple exterior with a starburst of brilliant orange at the core, and Lunar White gives contrast. (No, none of these are named after party drugs from the 80s.)
