Green Carrots?

Do you know there are 3 types of carrot? White, red and green carrots, I was a bit surprised when my wife told me; she has not seen green color carrot before. Hence last Sunday, we put all this carrots together and cook it as a soup. For Chinese, pork rib is preferred to be use as the meat to bring out the taste of these carrots. Combining this 3 types of carrots, is known to have a detoxification effect.

It is rumours that this soup will help the body to naturally cleanse itself of toxic. However you will need to slow boil it for 4 hours, reason being, white carrot is known to cause breathlessness. Hence the 4 hours is to get rid of this potential breathlessness effect. If you loves carrot, try this out…..

Hmm, isn't the green one called hairy marrow? And I've never seen red ones before. Interesting.

Monica, oh ....really..

Wuching, after scraping and cooking it, its the same look as the white carrot.

De Book Worm, not sure but when we buy it from a wet market, we ask for Green Carrot. The red ones is actually white carrot. The other type of white carrot is actually white outside....

Could you sell me some green carrots that are possible to grow? Can you ask the person you bought it from for ones which can be grown, or even better, the seeds?
