Carrot's Colorful past:
"Red, black yellow, white, purple, green--these were the colors that carrots started out with. Everything but orange. Carrots were first cultivated in Afghanistan in the 7th century, and they started with yellow flesh and a purple exterior. The first carrots weren't even cultivated as a food crop. They were grown as medicine."
"The root vegetables we know today as carrots originated 3,000 years ago in Middle Asia in the area of Afghanistan, and slowly spread into the Mediterranean area. The first carrots were white, purple and yellow – not orange. The Dutch developed orange carrots in the 1600s. All modern day carrots are directly descended from Dutch-bred carrots. Early Colonial Americans grew carrots. Thomas Jefferson raised several types of carrots in his Monticello garden."
Vitamine A is derived from beta-carotene and carrots are the leading source of this substance in the American diet. In fact, carotenoids, the group of plant pigments of which beta-carotene is a member, are so named because they were first identified in carrots. This ever-popular vegetable is also a source of disease-fighting flavonoids, and carrots contain a specific type of fiber, called calcium pectate, which may lower blood cholesterol.
The carrot belongs to the Umbelliferae family, and is recognizable by its feathery leaves as a relative of parsley, dill, fennel, celery, and the wildflower Queen Anne's Lace, from which it first may have been domesticated.
The carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus) is a root vegetable, usually orange or white, or red-white blend in color, with a crisp texture when fresh. The edible part of a carrot is a taproot. It is a domesticated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. It has been bred for its greatly enlarged and more palatable, less woody-textured edible taproot, but is still the same species.
It is a biennial plant which grows a rosette of leaves in the spring and summer, while building up the stout taproot, which stores large amounts of sugars for the plant to flower in the second year. The flowering stem grows to about 1 m tall, with an umbel of white flowers.
As the name implies, carrots are brimming with beta carotene. Beta carotene is a substance that is converted to Vitamin A in the human body. A 1/2 cup serving of cooked carrots contains four times the recommended daily intake of Vitamin A in the form of protective beta carotene.
Beta carotene is also a powerful antioxidant effective in fighting against some forms of cancer, especially lung cancer. Current research suggests that it may also protect against stroke, and heart disease. Research also shows that the beta carotene in vegetables supplies this protection, not vitamin supplements. So eat your carrots.

Carrots are actually of the parsley family which includes about 2,500 species. The cultivated carrot belongs to the genus Daucus L. which contains many wild forms. Grow mostly in the Mediterranean areas and in Southwest Asia, but some representatives are found in tropical Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the American continents.
The carrot (Daucus carota) gets its name from the French word carotte,comes from the Latin carota.
Is believed to have originated in Afghanistan and adjacent areas but not confirmed. The plant was known also in China, where it was ((((supposed to have come from Persia.))))))??
Several countries claim origin to the carrot the best I can tell you is it's been around since prehistoric times.
The cultivation of the carrot can be linked directly to the Mediterranean. Botanists and writers on gardening, all over Europe, were familiar with the carrot and were describing many kinds, including red and purple kinds in France, yellow and red kinds in England.
The carrot is high in the pro vitamin "A" and beta carotene which is an antioxidant that fight free radicals.
Simply put it's good to help prevent cancer.
