Carrots are one of the most versatile vegetables. Sweet, nutritious, and packed with beta-carotene, antioxidants, and minerals. The juicy orange root we know today originally came from a stringy wild carrot in the Middle East, and its ancient relative resides locally as Queen Anne's Lace. Carrots develop forked taproots (sometimes in funny shapes) from being grown in rocky soil.
