Hudson Valley Seed company takes breeding to an art form. All of their seeds are open pollinated on their upstate New York Farm, all heirloom, organic and never GMO. Each year they do an open call for artists to design their beautiful packaging.
Plant Breeder John Navazio and his colleagues developed this variety from one of Chinese origin. It dwells below the soil with the Fucanglong Dragon, the dragon of the underworld and hidden treasures, an apt companion for this carrot, as its purple skin hides a bright orange and gold interior with a terrific, sweet-and-carroty flavor. Delight in the aesthetics of this variety, and rejoice in the work of small-scale and public-interest plant breeders: the true hidden treasures of organic agriculture.
