Lunar White carrot seeds have been grown since the early 1600s, and they are still being grown for a good reason. This carrot is very mild and so delicious! Pure white, and nearly coreless, these carrots are ready in as little as 60 days.
The first mention of red, white, and purple carrots can be found in the records of both Afghanistan and Egypt. Yellow carrots, on the other hand, date back to Turkish records from the 900s. Carrots fulfilled medicinal purposes for thousands of years, being used for maladies as diverse as indigestion and cancer. After World War I, carrots became extremely popular in the United States, and are now produced commercially mostly in Texas, Michigan, and California.
