Rainbow Carrots

On Friday I went and explored the Copley Square fruit and veg stalls and came across this colorful container of carrots! After a quick chat with the vendor, I learned that carrots originally looked like these (white, purple, green, black yellow, and red in color) and it wasn't until the 1600's that the Dutch developed the orange carrot.

I would have to buy some if I came across a display like that. Wouldn't they be lovely in a salad?

This is very interesting. They are beautiful and I agree with Annie: I'd probably could not resist to taste them.
