This tasty and nutritious red variety from India is extra rich in antioxidants — 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!
