Item details

Handmade

One of the darkest carrots available. A delicious 8-10″ long carrot with a tapered shape and sweet taste. Not just the skin that is deeply colored, the midnight purple color goes all the way through to the core. Black Nebula is scrumptious raw or cooked and does not lose its color when cooked! 75 days. 65+ Organic carrots.

Makes a stunning dark purple drink when juiced; when a squeeze of lemon is added, it turns bright pink! The juice is also used as a natural coloring for easter eggs & fabric, just check out your tongue after you take a bite out of one! Black Nebula is more rustic, not as refined (the roots can look a bit "hairy" sometimes, but are easily peeled), as traditional orange or hybrid carrots, but well worth growing. Among all of the health benefits too long to list, this variety ranks highest in anthocyanins. If left in the garden, it makes exquisite white umbel flowers tinged with lavender. Pollinators love carrot flowers.

~ planting ~

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Successive sowings every 3 weeks until 60 days before first fall frost. In climates with lows above 25° F, grow all winter. When to start inside: Not recommended

~ harvesting ~

Harvesting can begin as early as 70 days, or at 3/4 maturity. Sweet and already with red color at that stage. Do not allow carrots to get larger than normal size (11”). Late summer planted carrots are very sweet if harvested after first couple of light fall frosts, but before heavy frost. In climates where temperatures don’t fall below 20° F, with protection, carrots can be left in ground for storage and harvested as needed.

~ additional instructions ~
- all seeds are heirloom, open-pollinated, organic & non-gmo (unless noted otherwise).
- detailed instructions are included with every seed package.
