+ the carrot museum

delicieuse purple carrots
Discovered the carrot museum today , an online museum devoted to the humble carrot . According to them carrots were originally purple or red, with a thin root. The species did not turn orange until the 1500's when Dutch growers used a mutant yellow carrot seed from North Africa to develop a carrot in the colour of the House of Orange, the Dutch Royal Family.

If you're crazy about carrots, or simply curious, then check out the World Carrot Museum ;)
