Purple Carrots ~~ Many people are unfamiliar to the purple carrot; its roots date back 5,000 years ago in the area now known as Afghanistan. Although the purple carrot may be the precursor in the carrot world, it is still widely undervalued. This is a disgrace as this darker colored carrot is highly nutritious and promotes many healthy benefits to consumers.
The massive plant is attached to a university building in Nanning, China, and currently stands over 100ft high. While the purple bougainvillea was planted just ten years ago, it has already grown enough to cover the five-storey building from top to bottom.
