In the Autumn when the leaves are turning beautiful  crimsons, gold and rust you can harvest these colorful carrots from your own garden.  If you want to grow these beautiful carrots yourself you can order online seeds from Cook’s Garden at  http://www.cooksgarden.com/

‘White Satin’  produces crisp, white, 8” carrots. It is a Nantes variety that adds a different color to the carrot rainbow.

‘Purple Dragon’  produces 8-10” tapered carrots with purple skin and a bright orange core. Its a throwback to the original carrot. The color fades when cooked but its still a phytochemical gold mine for the body.

‘Kaleidoscope Mix’  is a multicolor mix of red, purple, yellow, and orange 7-8” carrots. A seed packet contains equal parts of ‘Atomic Red’, ‘Bambino Orange’, ‘Cosmic Purple’, ‘Lunar White‘ and ‘Solar Yellow‘ seeds.

With this crunchy powerfood, you get vitamin A and a host of other powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging; no matter if its color is orange or not.
