Yep, it had a very purple skin. It's another one of the veggies from the local organic farm thingamajig we're doing. I was very disappointed, though, to discover it's just as orange underneath.

I heard a while ago that back in the day, all carrots were purple. Then somebody bred the orange carrot as a joke, and it stuck around. I don't know if that's accurate, though.

I heard that story too.. dont know where.. cant remember why. I like the story though. Purple carrots, mmmmm :)

oh also.. im not eating as yet.. but im seriously thinking about some custard! mmmmmmm custard! But we dont have any.. so yeah. its all dreaming.

Wikipedia wrote:Eastern carrots

Eastern carrots were domesticated in Central Asia, probably in modern-day Afghanistan in the 10th century or possibly earlier. Those of the eastern carrot that survive to the present day are commonly purple or yellow in color, and often have branched roots. The purple color common in these carrots comes from anthocyanin pigments.

Western carrots

The Western carrot emerged in the Netherlands in the 15th or 16th century, its orange color making it popular in those countries as an emblem of the House of Orange and the struggle for Dutch independence. The orange color results from abundant carotenes in these cultivars. While orange carrots are nearly ubiquitous in the West, other colors do exist, including white, yellow, red, and purple. These other colors of carrot are raised primarily as novelty crops.

The Vegetable Improvement Center at Texas A&M University has developed a purple-skinned, orange-fleshed carrot, the BetaSweet (also known as the Maroon Carrot), with substances to prevent cancer, which has recently entered commercial distribution.


Well whaddya know, you were not kidding.

I'd still prefer orange though. Keeping true to my home country.

I am actually very much craving a "Black" carrot as we call them, they are as abundant as the orange ones in Afghanistan. Also they have a slightly different taste, orange ones being the sweet and plain, and purple ones being a bit less sweet and a touch of sour.

Also, I just had a glass of warm milk with this Afghan thing I can't find the name of in english , going to go make eggs now.

I have the good excuse of English not being my native language.
The correct word should off course be chunk, or something.

I was confusing the dutch word for 'chunk' homp with 'lump' and 'hump'.

I love this stuff. So does the rest of my family. But I drink it in moderation, so I usually only get some half a glass everytime it's bought, so they finally got me my owncarton.
