Black Carrot ‘Kuro-ninjin’
While not as common as its orange cousin, the black carrot (‘kuro-ninjin’ in Japanese) is the earliest known variety of carrot and can be commonly found in Okinawa. Black carrots, which are actually a deep purple, have a sweeter and at times more peppery taste compared to the orange variety.
