Carrots were first cultivated in central Asian and Middle Eastern countries back in the 7th century. These carrots had a deep purple coloring and appeared very different to the ones we know today. The orange carrot was not developed until the 17th century when Dutch agriculturists began developing varieties with smoother, more pleasing textures. The new types of carrot spread across Europe and also the North American colonies. The carrot became so popular it was the first vegetable that was canned in the early 1800s.
