Black Spanish
(Noire d'Espagne)

65 to 75 days — 'Black from Spain', also known as 'Noire d'Espagne' or 'Black Spanish', is a very old carrot variety reportedly from Cuevas Bajas, a village in Andalusia, Spain.[1] Its roots grow to six to fourteen inches long and are a deep violet, almost black, color, but yellow-white on the inside. They have a fine texture with an excellent flavor that tends to be more complex than typical orange carrots. They add an interesting flavor to soups and other recipes and eaten raw, are a good source of anthocyanins. Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is approximately 250 seeds.
