It might be pithy and tasteless try it and see is what I would do.

Carrots come in lots of colours we are simply used to seeing orange ones

Thanks for your replies Morgana and Moon grower - we had it for our dinner along with the orange carrots and it tasted the same - delicious!

Yes, it's just a throwback in colour. They used to be yellow.
