Red carrots have a deep burgundy color that is literally only skin deep. The flesh itself is a brilliant array of orange hues. It is is one of the few characteristics the Red carrot has in common with orange carrots. Other common threads include flavor and texture. Baby Red carrots are crisp and yet tender, sweet as well as earthy, a direct signal of their derivation.
Red carrots are available year-round.
Carrots, botanical name Daucus Carota subs. sativus, belong to the Umbelliferae family along with parsnips, fennel caraway, cumin and dill. Each plant in this family has the umbrella-like flower clusters that characterize this family of plants. Carrots are classified as a root vegetable, though the plant is comprised of a taproot, midribs and greens. The taproot is the nutritional storage vessel of the plant.
Red carrots contain lycopene, a naturally occuring pigment that doubles as an antioxidant. Lycopene is known for its anti-cancer benefits such as preventing, fighting and repairing cell damage within human bodies.
Red carrots are tender, sweeter and cook more quickly than mature carrots. This gives them a culinary advantage over larger varieties for multiple applications. They make incredible pickled carrots, are quintessential for brining and deep frying and they make great protein companions when pan-roasted or grilled. Red carrots can be eaten raw in crudites, pureed into sauces, boiled and braised. All carrots pair well with almonds, bacon, butter, celery, cheeses, especially cheddar, parmesan and pecorino, cinnamon, cream, ginger, parsley, potatoes, mushrooms, shallots, tomaotes and vinegar, especially red and white wine. Scrub thoroughly or peel to prepare.
All carrot varieties are descendents of a wild carrot native to modern day Afghanistan. The wild carrot, Daucus Carota, not only still grows wild but it also is not the ubiquitous orange color we associate with carrots. During the 17th century, Dutch growers have been credited with cultivating the orange carrot, which was essentially a tribute to William of Orange, who led the Dutch in their struggle for independence. Red carrots were developed in 1989 by Texas Agricultural Experiment Station horticulturist Dr. Leonard Pike, director of Texas A & M's Vegetable Improvement Center.
