Carrots are popular tubers and vegetables grown primarily for food. They’re also relatively easy to grow and don’t require a lot of supervision.

Carrot, (Daucus carota) are herbaceous, generally biennial plant of the Apiaceae family that produces an edible taproot. Among common varieties root shapes range from globular to long, with lower ends blunt to pointed.

Wild carrot (also called Queen Anne’s lace) is native to Eurasia and is thought to have been domesticated in Central Asia around 1000 CE. Prehistoric seeds have been found in archaeological digs, suggesting that the plant was used medicinally before the domestication of its edible root.
