The Q&A Archives: Source for Purple Carrots And Green Soybeans

Question: I would like to plant purple carrots and green soybeans in my garden this year for their nutritional value. Where in my area may I purchase them?

Answer: I don't have a listing of local retail outlets, but I can give you some mail order sources:

Burpee sells a Shiratori soybean called 'Butterbaby'. You can order via the internet at, or call 1-800-888-1447

You can purchase the purple colored carrot 'Dragon' from Garden City Seeds, phone: 406-961-4837,

Burpee also sells a carrot variety, 'Burpee A1 Hybrid', which has twice the vitamin A as other carrots.
