Tasty and nutritious red variety from India, extra rich in the antioxidants. This particular variety is very high in beta-carotene and lycopene. Red carrots have been cultivated in India since antiquity, where they are used in a range of recipes, especially in jams and chutneys. Lycopene is an antioxidant that is most nutritionally effective when cooked with a fat, consequently many traditional red carrot recipes combine red carrot with oils or fats. Great for juicing!
