Default Horticulture: Varieties of colored carrots

These were found at a local farmer's market.

I never knew there were different colored carrots - fascinating! Do the different colors have a different taste, like sweet peppers do?

Now that's wild. I have seen the common orange variety and some of the yellow ones but I have never seen the others. Great shot, Selvin.

MtnGal, Vsch1, Calr, Thanks for your comments.

I've tasted most of the color varieties and to tell you the truth to my untrained palette they all taste the same. But then again, my wife thinks I'm a color blind, tone deaf and "tasteless."

Great shot selvin! Being from Hawaii (like selvin) I see parsnips in the market looking like carrots but have never ate them. Do they taste like carrrots?

Wow what a colorful shot! I've never seen a purple carrot.

Paniolo, Wave01 and Saly, Thanks for your comments.

As to the taste of the colored carrots, they are very similar to the orange colored variety. I suspect if you were given a blindfold test you may not be able to reliably differentiate between the varieties.

Cheers

What a wonderful array! Oh, to get them into my kitchen. Do they all taste different?
