Baby Red Bunched Carrots
Inventory, bunch : 0
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.
Baby Red Carrots are available from McGrath Family Farm fall through spring.
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.
Carrots were originally purple, however, other colors such as red, white and yellow also appeared in Asia thousands of years ago.
