Carrot boy

Trying to sell me carrots through a car window. Drive through
supermarkets, fantastic idea. And yes, these carrots really are red.
Most of the carrots I ate in India were red.

Love that pic!

And that's the original colour of carrots i think. They were meant to be purple in the UK but got genetically engineered (thru natural means) to be orange purely for marketing & commercial reasons. I've always mused to myself how strange it is that we may never see purple carrots in the same way that we'll never see dinosaurs - (can one really mourn an extinct vegetable?) - and you've just totally proved me wrong!

Just wondering...When I was in Kenya & Tanzania, all the fruit & veg looked & tasted slightly different...better actually!

That's how I knew they were definitely carrots. There was a kind of white carrot/radish thing too. That didn't taste much of anything.

Cool as....a blue cucumber!

I always thought carrots were originally yellow/white before the orange variety came from Holland and took over the entire western market.
