Organic Carrots of Many Colors

Organic Carrots of Many Colors

March 20, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

A little history… until a few hundred years ago, carrots were most common in myriad colors. The Dutch combined a yellow carrot with a red one and came up with orange, their national color. These new carrots took hold and became the standard by which other carrots are judged. These days, the colorful originals are making a comeback, and while we’re big fans of orange carrots, we also have a strong affinity for the Organic Carrots of Many Colors. Every two pound bag is filled with a random assortment of yellow, purple, cream/white, red, and of course orange carrots. They all taste like carrots – no surprise there – but their color really pops on a plate.

Slice these vibrant taproots into spears, present them on a tray, and serve them with your favorite dip. Or toss them with olive oil, salt & pepper and roast them in a 400ºF oven for about 20 minutes – their hues will subdue when cooked, but their naturally sweet flavor will really shine and complement your entrée. We’re selling each two pound bag for $1.99*, a value that will surely drive up your carrot consumption. You’ll find them in our refrigerated produce case.


*Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Organic Carrots of Many Colors are $1.99 in our West Coast, $2.29 in our Texas stores, $2.49 in our Midwest and South East stores, and $2.79 in our East Coast stores.
