Find out more about the carrot

Carrot: Everyone regularly eats carrots… orange. But you should know that there are many varieties, often old and brought up to date: purple, pink, green, white, yellow, conical or round ... the orange carrot being the result of human intervention. It was in the 17th century, after many crosses between red carrots and white carrots, that the Dutch finally obtained a beautiful orange carrot, as we know it today.

Often confused with parsnip at this time, it will be more and more cultivated and consumed over the centuries, and will eventually supplant it.
