The "purple" carrot is reportedly "anti-cancer,anti-oxidant and anti-aging".

How much would it cost?:scratch:

I'd eat it if it really was a nice shade of purple but as others have said that just looks burnt. Bleah!!!

Were carrots not originally purple and over the years the orange version became a hybrid or something. I seriously thought I heard something like that somewhere.
