Maroon carrots are available year round.
Baby Red bunched carrots have an unusual maroon color and are sweeter and easier to chew than a regular carrot. Some have compared its tenderness to celery. The maroon exterior is only superficial, however the interior is bright orange and is one of the few characteristics this carrot has in common with the basic carrot.
Red baby bunch carrots are high in beta carotene. They contain lycopene, a pigment also found in tomatoes and watermelon. Studies show that lycopene helps prevent heart disease and some cancers including prostate cancer. Purple carrots contain anthocyanins, pigments that act as powerful antioxidants and also help prevent heart disease by slowing blood clotting.
It has a chewy texture which is a great addition to salads, coleslaw, gelatin molds or enjoyed just by itself. Steam, microwave, bake or gently grill. Perfect for tempera or to make carrot cake. Sauté until crisp-tender in butter and season with fresh herbs for a side dish. To store, wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
Carrots were originally purple. However, other colors such as red, white and yellow also appeared in Asia thousands of years ago. About 200 years ago, the first orange carrots were cultivated in the Netherlands and the Royal House of Oranje is credited for the carrot's popularity.
Maroon carrots were developed by Texas Agricultural Experiment Station horticulturist Dr. Leonard Pike, director of Texas A & M's Vegetable Improvement Center. When he found three of them in 1989, they caught his attention and he soon began successfully growing them. Dr. Pike said he first grew them just as a novelty item because of their maroon color, being one of Texas A & M's school colors. Named BetaSweet, these carrots were sold only in certain Texas grocery stores beginning in January 1998.
