Purple and White Carrots!
The guy was selling them at Santa Monica's Farmers Market on Sunday (Main St & Ocean Park).
He said they were the original carrots until the Dutch monarchy interbred them to be ORANGE for patriotic reasons!
Anyone know if that's true?
Absolutely true. House of Orange: "The orange colour we know is the result of Dutch cultivation in the 17th Century, when patriotic growers turned a vegetable which was then purple into the colour of the national flag."
Love those veggies!
Yummy! Love veggies, these look amazing, haven't had the treat of coming across anything like them though...yet!
