Purple ball carrot project, ongoing results

Last spring I harvested and selected my purple carrot project. One selection was Purple Balls, deep magenta, small round blunt ended carrots. They produced seed in late summer, which was replanted in March.
Today I pulled the patch, prior to fridge stratification and replanting.
Orange is still dominant, as is pointy ends. At least they are mostly short.

  1. I was thinking about this today while adding purple carrots to my fruit smoothy.

    round parisienne ball carrot or other short ones.

    btw even if you cut a lot of the most purest purple carrots cultivars a small percentage will show some orange
