ORIGINS

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 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.

The Cuevas Bajas purple carrot has roles in innumerable health benefits, proportioning six times more antioxidants than orange carrots, regulating bowel functions, providing antiparasitic properties, stimulating appetite, relieving inflammatory symptoms, protecting against heart diseases, strengthening the immunological system, preventing cellular aging, stabilizing blood glucose, and optimizing eye and skin health.
