The Purple Haze is a modern carrot variety which combines a good taste with striking looks. Good for creating a new twist on popular dishes, this carrot is best eaten raw or only lightly cooked to retain the colours.
Sow seeds thinly in rows 30 cm (12 in) apart. Cover lightly with 1.5 cm (half inch) of fine soil. Firm gently and keep moist.
For continuous crops sow every 2-3 weeks.
When harvesting select young carrots alternately from the row, allowing the remainder to develop fully. No other thinning is needed if sown thinly. Keep well watered to prevent roots splitting.
