The Carrot Day was founded 2003 to spread knowledge about the carrot and its good attributes around the world.

Celebrations have been reported from France, Italy, Sweden, Russia, Australia, UK, and Japan.

California is responsible for 85% of the carrots that U.S. citizens purchase in grocery stores across the country. While the taproot is traditionally the star of the culinary show, carrot greens — the part that grows out of the soil and toward the sun — are equally edible. Many countries use this portion of the plant to mix in with their salad greens.

In 1000 AD Farmers in Afghanistan began to propagate the ancestor to today’s modern carrot. During World War II, many citizens begin to learn different methods for preparing the carrots grown in their home gardens.

If you love carrots then you will love The World Carrot Museum which is the first virtual museum in the world entirely devoted to the history, evolution, science, sociology, and art of Carrots. The mission is to educate, inform and amuse visitors through the discovery, collection, preservation, interpretation, and exhibition of objects relating to the Carrot. This site provides lots of interesting and useful information about the humble carrot.
