Cuevas Bajas Purple Carrots

Cuevas Bajas products

The Zanahoria Morá (Daucus carota L. ssp. sativus var. atrorubens) is a tuber with ancient origins. The origin of purple carrots cultivation is located in Cuevas Bajas, a picturesque village in the northeast of the province of Málaga, at the medieval Caliphate of Cordoba and Emirate of Granada settlements on the banks of the Genil River, an ideal framework for its preservation. Cuevas Bajas, a picturesque town in the northeast province of Málaga, has the merits of its ancestral cultivation, and thanks to a pioneering project, this endangered species is being reintroduced to the local crops.

The purple carrots

The authentic Black Carrot (Zanahoria Morá) from Cuevas Bajas is preserved through a rigorous selection of seeds to perpetuate its distinctive characteristics such as a striking and unique violet heart with a wide range of shades of purple arranged in concentric circles. It is planted in early summer, and coinciding with the harvest in early December, a rare festival is celebrated in honour of this vegetable. During the celebration, all the goodness of this Málaga town is shown, and the black carrot is tasted through its many culinary uses.
