Interesting to read that Viola man. Am I right in thinking that carrots originally were a very insipid colour and that they were gradually bred to become more orange/red ? I think because they were a more pleasing colour to the eye and therefore seemed more edible.
Now it seems fashionable to grow white, yellow or purple carrots. I haven't tried the "new" colours but might give them a go if you reckon their flavour is good
