Ancient Greeks used carrots to treat stomachaches.

Carrots were originally white, purple, red, yellow, green, or black. Orange carrots came from the Dutch who cultivated them for the House of Orange.

Carrots are a rich source of the antioxidant beta-carotene and also contain vitamins B and C, calcium, phosphorous, iron, and magnesium.

Carrots are native to Afghanistan.

Originally, carrots were only used for medicinal purposes rather than as food.
