The purple carrots was originated in where is now Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan around 1000 a.C. It wasn't until 1600 when a Dutch developed the orange carrots that are now the most common, to honor the colors of their flag.

We must sow directly into the final place, do rows on the soil spaced about 15 cm, then scatter the seeds for the rows and cover lightly with soil. We have to water at night and to increase watering during periods of drought. We should be kept the soil moist but not too much. If we planted at intervals of three weeks we have carrots at our table without interruption.
