Carrots are a domesticated form of the wild carrot, Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. Carrot probably originated in Persia and was originally cultivated for its leaves and seeds. Carrots vary widely in color and shape depending upon the cultivar types. Oriental taproots are long, featuring a flat top end with tapering, tail-like lower parts. They are winter season crops in many areas of Asia. European carrots, on the other hand, are cylindrical with rounded ends. Also, European varieties feature bright orange color in contrast to saffron colored Asian cultivars.
