New therapies for leukaemia are urgently needed. Carrots have been suggested as a potential treatment for leukaemia in traditional medicine and have previously been studied in other contexts as potential sources of anticancer agents. Indicating that carrots may contain bioactive compounds, which may show potential in leukaemia therapies. This study investigated the effects of five fractions from carrot juice extract (CJE) on human lymphoid leukaemia cell lines, together with five purified bioactive compounds found in Daucus carota L, including: three polyacetylenes (falcarinol, falcarindiol and falcarindiol-3-acetate) and two carotenoids (beta-carotene and lutein). Their effects on induction of apoptosis using Annexin V/PI and Caspase 3 activity assays analysed via flow cytometry and inhibition of cellular proliferation using Cell Titer Glo assay and cell cycle analysis were investigated. Treatment of all three lymphoid leukaemia cell lines with the fraction from carrot extracts which contained ...
This thesis is concerned with a study of the external, environmental conditions on the growth and development of the carrot Daucus carota L., as well as the carotene content, morphogenetic and other effects of defoliation or extirpation of the apex. Auxanometer records of root growth in different environments were also obtained. Experiments have also been carried out to simulate environmental and other effects by means of external application of known plant growth substances, in an attempt to explain morphogenetic changes in terms of internal plant regulation. Briefly, the results of daylength/temperature experiments on tops and roots have indicated that maximum total plant growth results at relatively warm temperatures, but under these conditions the leaf fraction is favoured; lone-day treatment results in similar effects. Root and top temperatures had striking differential effects. Both can be simulated by gibberellic acid application which is not dependent on the site of treatment. At lower ...
Daucus carota L.ssp.carota (wild carrot), an herb used in folk medicine worldwide, was recently demonstrated to exhibit anticancer activity. In this study we examined the anticancer effect of Daucus carota oil extract (DCOE) fractions on the human breast adenocarcinoma cell lines MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 and clarified the mechanism of action. Using the WST assay, the pentane fraction (F1) and 1:1 pentane:diethyl ether fraction (F2) were shown to possess the highest cytotoxicity against both cell lines. Flow cytometric analysis revealed that both fractions induced the accumulation of cells in the sub-G1 phase, increase in apoptotic cell death and chromatin condensation. The increase in apoptosis in response to treatment was also apparent in the increase in BAX and the decrease in Bcl-2 levels as well as the proteolytic cleavage of both caspase-3 and PARP as revealed by Western blot. Furthermore, treatment of MDA-MB-231 cells with either fraction significantly reduced the level of phosphorylated Erk but did

Through this work we followed the influence of some thermal treatments on the carotenoids content of carrots. Carrots were analyzed fresh and after blanching, boiling, freezing raw and freezing blanching prior. Carotenoids content of the samples was determined spectrophotometrically. As raw material were used carrots from the domestic market, Flam variety. The highest carotenoid content was recorded for raw carrot (82.716 mg / g). By boiling for 20 minutes, the content of carotenoids in carrot remains only 28% (23.209 mg /g). Frozen carrot also lose the contents of carotenoids, leaving only 33.8% (27.961 mg /g). The lowest content of carotenoids(20.196 g/g) was found in carrots blanched and then frozen for 2 months at -18˚C ...
Carrots growing in a garden, if allowed to escape and grown on their own, will revert back to its wild variety in just a few years. Its wild ancestor is known as Queen Annes Lace (Daucus Carota) - the beautiful white lacey flower adorning dry, abandoned fields. It is commonly named after the Queen Anne of England who was a talented lace maker. It is said that the center purple/red bloom on the flower is stained so after Queen Anne pricked her finger while making lace. This wild carrot is edible but dont try it unless you are sure, poison hemlock is a close look alike. Carrot blooms were used in ancient communities to increase fertility in women and in men to increase desire. The ancient Greeks had a love potion made from carrots as they believed it had a property to inspire love and "serv(ed) for love matters." Carrots seeds & flowers use to be considered an aphrodisiac. Although, this directly contradicts the laster use of wild carrot as a birth control method. This is partially true because ...

The methylation and amplification pattern of genomic DNA of carrot root expiants (Daucus carota L.) undergoes transitory changes during the cultural cycle. A high degree of variation was observed as early as 36 h after the incubation of fresh expiants in the nutrient medium and, depending on the hormonal treatment significant modifications occurred during 14 days of culture. Proliferative tissue conditioned by kinetin showed an extensive reduction in DNA methylation. Changes in the DNA amplification pattern were not necessarily linked to methylation.
Tis the season for wild carrot (Daucus carota), also known as Queen Annes Lace. Now I know what everyone is thinking, "but wild carrot looks so much like poison hemlock that Im scared to eat it." I could address the differences here but you know what, I dont think they look the same at all and I dont cater to scaredy cats. Figure it out for yourself. There are plenty of resources out there, read them. Then take out your field guide, open it to the drawings and put your bar stool video game skills use playing "spot the difference".. Urban Scout and I recently found the longest wild carrots ever growing in some piles of loose dirt in his Moms yard. I would estimate these to be 4 times longer than your average wild carrot, so unless you stumble upon a loose dirt pile or you start tilling of patches of soil with your digging stick like hunter gathers did (yes, primitive people cultivated the land, get with the picture) dont expect your harvest to look like ours.. For eating, you want to find ...
Daucus is a worldwide genus of herbaceous plants of the family Apiaceae of which the best-known species is the cultivated carrot. Daucus has about 25 species. They differ in the family Apiaceae by their leaves 2-3 pinnatisect. The end sections are always narrow. The Daucus genus are annual plants or mostly biennial plants or also perennial herbs, with a bristly stem. The inflorescences are umbels. The umbel flowers are mostly white, with bracts and bracteoles. The tiny flowers are a compounded. The petals are pure white, reddish, pinkish or yellowish. They are emarginate above and have a pointed, wrapped lobules. The petals are often unequal in size, and the outermost edge of the flower is often brilliant. The fruit is ovoid to ellipsoidal, and cylindrical or compressed. The fruits have ciliated primary ribs and secondary ribs have a row of spines. Some species have a small pale or white edible root, similar to a radish, which may or may not be bitter in taste. The pollination is carried by ...

Health benefits of carrot juice:. 1. Stimulate Appetite and Improve Digestion When you have carrot juice around 20 minutes before eating a meal, it will serve to help stimulate your bodys secretion of the digestive juices, serving as a great appetizer. The soluble fiber in carrots can benefit your digestive organs in many ways, thus promoting digestion.. 2. Improve Eyesight. Most people are already aware that carrot juice improves eyesight but do not know how it does so. It is because carrots contain both beta-carotene and lutein. These compounds protect vision, specifically night vision. The liver converts beta-carotene into vitamin A and then this compound goes to the retina and becomes rhodopsin, a substance necessary to healthy night-vision.. 3. Prevent Cancer. Carrot juice contains high levels of carotenoids and these have been associated with a decrease of 20% for postmenopausal breast cancer. Some studies looking at the carrot juice benefits have also shown a 50% decrease in occurrence ...
The carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus) is a root vegetable, usually orange in colour, though purple, black, red, white, and yellow cultivars exist. Carrots are a domesticated form of the wild carrot, Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. The plant probably originated in Persia and originally cultivated for its leaves and seeds. The most commonly eaten part of the plant is the taproot, although the greens are sometimes eaten as well. The domestic carrot has been selectively bred for its greatly enlarged, more palatable, less woody-textured taproot.. The carrot is a biennial plant in the umbellifer family Apiaceae. At first, it grows a rosette of leaves while building up the enlarged taproot. Fast-growing cultivars mature within three months (90 days) of sowing the seed, while slower-maturing cultivars are harvested four months later (120 days). The roots contain high quantities of alpha- and beta-carotene, and are a good source of vitamin K and vitamin B6, but the belief that ...

A protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) coding sequence was cloned from a cDNA library derived from carrot (Daucus carota L.) somatic embryos. The cDNA is 2060 bp in length and encodes for a protein of 581 amino acids and molecular weight of 64.4 kDa. Primary structure analysis of the deduced protein revealed two thioredoxin-like active sites and an endoplasmic reticulum-retention signal at its C-terminus, which is also found in PDIs in plants and animals. Although between the carrot protein and other plant PDIs there is only about 30% identity, the active site regions are almost identical. The corresponding mRNA was found in varying amounts, in all tissues investigated. A recombinant protein expressed from the carrot cDNA clone effectively catalyzed both glutathione-insulin transhydrogenation and the oxidative renaturation of denatured RNase A. These results suggest that the protein coded for by the carrot gene is a novel member of the PDI family in plants. We therefore designated this novel carrot gene

The carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus, Etymology: Middle French carotte, from Late Latin carōta, from Greek karōton. Originally from the Indoeuropean root ker- (horn), due to its horny shape) is a root vegetable, usually orange or white, or red-white blend in colour, with a crisp texture when fresh. The edible part of a carrot is a taproot. It is a domesticated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. It has been bred for its greatly enlarged and more palatable, less woody-textured edible taproot, but is still the same species. Not to be confused with carat or caret. ...

Carrots (Daucus carota) are cool-weather root vegetables that are believed to be derived from the wild carrot known as Queen Annes lace (D. carota var. carota). Carrots are both easy and fun to grow. They can be eaten raw, steamed, added to soups, grated or made into breads or cakes. They are rich sources of ...
Essential oil profiling in callus of some Daucus genotypes growing in Syria has been investigated in this work. Genotypes included three wild Daucus species (D. carota L, D. guttatus Sm. and D. bicolor Sm.) in addition to two carrot cultivars: red and yellow (D. carota L. subsp. sativus). Seeds were germinated in vitro and the roots of the resultant plantlets were used to initiate and grow callus ...
The superior ability of citrate excretion in a carrot (Daucus carota L.) mutant cell line, namely IPG (insoluble phosphate grower) [Takita et al. (1999a) Plant Cell Physiol. 40: 489] cells has been characterized in terms of citrate transport at the plasma membrane. IPG cells released about a 20-fold increase in citrate in comparison with malate, while the concentration of malate was only 35% lower than that of citrate in the cell sap. Citrate excretion was sensitive to anion channel blockers, such as niflumic acid and anthracene-9-carboxylic acid. These results indicate that IPG cells release citrate through the plasma membrane using citrate specific anion channels. The rate of citrate release from IPG cells was not affected by the concentration of aluminum (0 and 50 µM), soluble Pi (0 or 2 mM) and the pH (4.5-5.6) of the medium, suggesting that anion channels would not be regulated by such external conditions. Citrate excretion correlated with the H+ efflux, possibly from the action of ...
Hi SMA , I have read the internet regarding carrot juice, I had my kidney removed 3 months ago 5.5 cm tumour in the middle, but I am having a scan on the 2cnd of september as I have 3 nodules in my lung that they say one looks suspicious, so i am waiting..

Somatic embryogenesis is a unique process in plant cells. For example, embryogenic cells (EC) of carrot (Daucus carota) maintained in a medium containing 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) regenerate whole plants via somatic embryogenesis after the depletion of 2,4-D. Although some genes such as C-ABI3 and C-LEC1 have been found to be involved in somatic embryogenesis, the critical molecular and cellular mechanisms for somatic embryogenesis are unknown. To characterize the early mechanism in the induction of somatic embryogenesis, we isolated genes expressed during the early stage of somatic embryogenesis after 2,4-D depletion. Subtractive hybridization screening and subsequent RNA gel blot analysis suggested a candidate gene, Carrot Early Somatic Embryogenesis 1 (C-ESE1). C-ESE1 encodes a protein that has agglutinin and S-locus-glycoprotein domains and its expression is highly specific to primordial cells of somatic embryo. Transgenic carrot cells with reduced expression of C-ESE1 had wide ...
Suspension culture of compact callus aggregates (CCA) of Daucus carota (carrot), consisting of yellow, spherical cellular clumps displaying tissue differentiation was established. The production of peroxidase which was detected in trace amounts in dispersed carrot cell cultures was found in high amounts (5.0-14.5 U g(-1) FW) in CCA cultures. Kinetics analysis showed that CCA grew quickly for 4-12 days with a specific growth rate of 0.20 day(-1), while the peroxidase activity increased sharply after day 12. Fungal elicitors were found to effectively induce peroxidase synthesis. Peroxidase activity of 54.0 U g(-1) FW was obtained by adding Aspergillus niger elicitor at day 16 to make its concentration in medium 50 mg l(-1). (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.

Short shelf life has caused a decline in the sale of B.c.-grown carrots from 8.1 million kgs in 1987 to 6.1 million kgs in 1990. This is due to greater postharvest water loss of B.C.-grown carrots compared to those from California and Washington. The aim of this study was to improve our understanding of the factors affecting carrot water loss by (1) establishing a procedure to measure surface area of carrot roots, (2) determining the effect of K fertilization on carrot growth, yield and water loss, and (3) determining the effects of periderm damage and interaction between periderm damage and K fertilization on water loss of carrots. Baugerod (1993), slicing and surface replica methods for determining surface area of carrot roots were compared using eight carrot varieties on two harvests, and on size grades small, medium, and large of carrots. Surface area values using the three methods were statistically different but the variation was less than 6%. Baugerod method is applicable to carrots of ...
Carrots are a root vegetable of Indo-European origin. Its tap root is the edible part and its considered to have a great nutritional value and health benefits. The purple carrot is rich in various nutrients like iron, vitamin, carbohydrates and proteins among others. Carrot contains a chemical called beta-carotene which makes its an effective natural remedy in fighting various health conditions. The nutrients in raw carrots get destroyed when they are cooked. Therefore, raw carrots have higher health benefits than the cooked ones.. Healthy Benefits of Purple Carrots. Prevention of cancer: Beta-carotene, a chemical found in purple carrots, help prevent different types of cancer, such as lung cancer. According to studies, the consumption of carrot minimizes risk of colon cancer by 24 percent. Women who eat carrots are less susceptible to breast cancer too.. Preventing heart diseases: The importance of purple carrot consumption in the prevention of heart disease has been proven by most medical ...
Artist is a long carrot, best grown for fall harvest. It is especially high in vitamin A and has a wonderfully sweet flavor. Loose, well-drained soil, free from clods and stones are a must for carrots. If your soil is less than ideal, plant only short rooted varieties. A hardy biennial grown as an annual, carrot
But it also identified a new, previously unknown gene that contributes to the accumulation of the colorful compounds. Both genes are recessive, which means two copies of each are needed for carotenoids to build up in the plant, which is actually a defect in a metabolic pathway that appears to be related to light-sensing.. Plants derive their own nutrition through light-sensing, or photosynthesis, but roots like carrots arent normally exposed to light and do not need photosynthetic pigments like carotenoids. "Its a repurposing of genes plants usually use when growing in light," says Simon.. It appears these genes were inadvertently selected for by early growers, and Simon suggests it may have simply been to aid early domesticators - likely to have been women - differentiate between wild carrots and the plants they intended to grow.. "They could keep their crops clean from a patch of wild carrots growing 50 meters away by choosing only the purple or yellow ones," says Simon, who jokes: "Or ...

This member of the parsley family has lacy green foliage and long, slender, edible orange roots. Carrots have been renowned for over 2,000 years for their health-giving properties and high vitamin A content. Their year-round availability makes them an immensely popular vegetable. If buying carrots with their greenery, make sure the leaves are moist and bright green; the carrots should be firm and smooth. Avoid those with cracks or any that have begun to soften and wither. The best carrots are young and slender. Tiny baby carrots are very tender but, because of their lack of maturity, not as flavorful as their full-grown siblings. Remove carrot greenery as soon as possible because it robs the roots of moisture and vitamins. Store carrots in a plastic bag in the refrigerators vegetable bin. Avoid storing them near apples, which emit ethylene gas that can give carrots a bitter taste. A light rinsing is all thats necessary for young carrots and tiny baby carrots; older carrots should be peeled. If ...

Apple Beetroot and Carrot Juice aka ABC juice is a juice which I started to like 3 months before. Yes just 3 months before only. I really dont have idea that beet root can be used in the juice. In my office canteen, they opened a new juice shop and in the juices list, they mentioned ABC juice. Wondering what it could be, enquired the shopper and she said it is Apple Beetroot and Carrot juice. I just ordered with a doubt how it might taste and to my surprise, I loved the juice in the first sip itself. From that time, I used to order this juice without sugar and ice. I really love it without sugar and ice. They have a big juice extractor to prepare this ABC juice.

Apple Beetroot and Carrot Juice aka ABC juice is a juice which I started to like 3 months before. Yes just 3 months before only. I really dont have idea that beet root can be used in the juice. In my office canteen, they opened a new juice shop and in the juices list, they mentioned ABC juice. Wondering what it could be, enquired the shopper and she said it is Apple Beetroot and Carrot juice. I just ordered with a doubt how it might taste and to my surprise, I loved the juice in the first sip itself. From that time, I used to order this juice without sugar and ice.

You may remember the mention I made in my post Then and Now: My Art Opening Night of the raw carrots and apple slices I had asked for as part of the food to nosh on while mingling and looking at the art. After the reception was over and we were packing everything up, Sandi asked me if Id like to take what apples and carrots were left home with me. Of course I said yes.. The carrots were the "baby" ones-organic, but peeled and shaved down to a munchie size, with no skin. Honestly, this isnt my favorite way to eat raw carrots. Im such a vegetable nerd that pretty much every day I do a good imitation of Bugs Bunny: I love to just take a whole carrot out of the frig and bite into its unpeeled whole goodness. I get the earthy taste of the vitamins in the skin, and I guess that also means Im not slicing it in a way to lessen the nutrients. (Im not cooking it either, which in some circles is the only way to enhance some of the carrots nutrients, but Im getting a good amount of vitamin C, and ...
Carrots are root vegetables that have a high carotene content and widely consumed in juice form. The weakness of processed juice is the damage and loss of carotene due to enzymatic reactions and oxidation that can occur during processing. Blanching treatment on carrot juice before manufacture can inactivate the enzyme so that it can minimize the loss of carotene. Response Surface Methodology (RSM) was used to optimize the treatment on the size of the carrot and the temperature during the process of blanching with response total carotene content. The highest value of total carotene exist in the treatment of carrot size 5x5x20 mm and temperature 60⁰C. This value is used as a central point in the optimization process using RSM. The results of the R software version 3.1.2 obtained a second ordo models corresponding to the value of R-square = 0.8404, p-value = 1,034% and the lack of fit = 0.6398. The optimum point response total carotenoid contained in carrot size 5x5x24 mm and blanching ...
How to Plant Carrots:. Always direct sow your carrot seeds into your garden, starting about 3 weeks before your last frost. Plant single rows about a foot apart and space seeds about 1 inch apart.

I think that it is safe to say that adults are flying and laying eggs from May to November. The only time that there are no flies is from November to April. There are two peak times when the flies are flying and this suggests that there are usually two generations during the summer. The first generation is from the end of April to the end of May and the eggs are laid from the end of May to the beginning of July. The second generation begins hatching from the beginning of July to the middle of August. Most eggs are laid from the beginning of July to the beginning of August. A third generation hatches from late September to late October and the larva from these overwinter in carrot roots and other wild members of the carrot family. Most wild species are less prone to carrot fly than the average cultivated carrot and sustain less carrot flies per plant. Fools parsley Aethusa cynapium is an important host so it is worth getting rid of it if you have it on or near the allotment. They can lay eggs ...
Carrots can be eaten in a variety of ways.

The greens are edible as a leaf vegetable, but are rarely eaten by humans;[52] some sources suggest that the greens contain toxic alkaloids.[53][54] When used for this purpose, they are harvested young in high-density plantings, before significant root development, and typically used stir-fried, or in salads.[52] Some people are allergic to carrots. In a 2010 study on the prevalence of food allergies in Europe, 3.6 percent of young adults showed some degree of sensitivity to carrots.[55] Because the major carrot ...

Did you know that before the 17th century, almost all cultivated carrots were deep purple, almost black, in color? Today, the purple carrot is making a comeback as health-conscious consumers are showing interest in this funky-looking heirloom vegetable. While purple carrots provide many of the same health benefits as orange carrots, they also offer some extraordinary nutritional benefits due to their high concentration of anthocyanins. For those who dont have a background in nutritional sciences, anthocyanins are flavonoid pigments that give many blue, purple, and black vegetables and berries their intense hues and strong health-boosting properties. ...
One of the most common misconceptions regarding carrot juice is that one will start to develop orange or yellow colored skin after steadily drinking the juice because of the carotene content in the juice. This is not true. The development of yellowish skin is due to the fact that carrot juice is a great liver cleanser and the toxicity within the body is coming to the surface. Keep up with the carrot juice and the symptoms will soon disappear. The formerly constipated liver is reconditioned once again to experience a free flow of bile the excess of which is eliminated through our largest eliminative organ, the skin. I have personally experienced this phenomenon during a time when we prepared hundreds of gallons of carrot juice a week for sale. Because the juice was so abundant and available, I drank it for nearly every meal...sometimes instead of meals. My wife soon commented upon the yellow cast which my skin began to take on. I continued drinking the juice, however, and within a week my skin ...

But adding to confusion on the wildlife tests, the federal agency also posted on its Web site a detailed April report from its lab consultants describing how they found the same defect in three blenders, which led to discarding five of 73 wildlife samples. At a public meeting Thursday, state and federal officials assured residents that further testing showed that squirrels, deer, rabbits and wild turkeys are not contaminated by lead, a component of the waste. However, they added, the battery of tests also showed that smaller animals, including frogs, and wild carrots have elevated levels of lead. "There is exposure that is accumulating on the site, but its not showing in the larger game animals," said Mark Sprenger, the EPA manager for the wildlife study ...
The Cruciform syndrome indicates a motor deficit corresponding to a brachial diplegia (brachial palsy predominant in comparison to inferior limb paresis). This kind of tetraparesis occurs with acute cervical medullary lesions or trauma. The term man in the barrel also refers to brachial diplegia. However this term is more general (indicating only motor aspects) and is independent from the site of lesions. The term cruciform (according to what I remember) should be specific to cases with cervical lesions and refers to the lesion involving the decussation of the corticospinal tract in the bulb-cervical spine junction. In the cervical bulbar pyramidal tracts, crossing of the fibers of the arms is probably inferior than that of the inferior limbs. This is the reason of the predominant superior limb involvement with the cruciform syndrome. I observed this syndrome in patients known for severe cervical spondylosis myelopathy even after minor trauma. If, in these traumatic cases, the motor deficits are ...
I think that the theories on mechanisms of the USN should necessarily include also the function of the areas on the left hemisphere involved in spatial rotations. I think that the syndrome is the result of the dysfunction of the integration of spatial information (in tridimensional coordinates) of the homologous areas of both hemispheres, which program body movements. These areas in normal conditions facilitate the work of the dominant eye, hand, leg on the right side of the body ...

Basic requirements Carrots are cool-season crops which can be planted in early Spring and left in the ground all summer for harvest in the fall. Carrots grow best in a well-draining, loose, sandy soil which is free of large rocks and has a pH between 5.5 and 7.0. They require full sun for optimum development but will tolerate some very light shade. The optimum temperature for their growth is between 16 and 24°C (61-74°F). Carrot seedlings are very sensitive to extremes of temperature, very hot weather may kill the plant whereas temperatures below 10°C (50°F) tend to cause the development of longer, paler roots. The plants also require plenty moisture and organic matter. Carrots do very well in raised beds and can also be grown in containers. Sowing seeds Carrot is usually direct seeded and should be planted 3-5 weeks before the least frost date in your area. Soil should be prepared prior to planting by removing rocks and breaking up any hard lumps of soil down to a depth of at least 30 cm ...

I LOVE carrots!!!! I can remember back to being a kid and tasting my first carrot. No I dont mean baby food in a jar or the kind you bought at the grocery store. I mean pulling the carrot from the garden, rinsing it with the hose and taking a bite. I had never really tasted a carrot until that moment and I will never forget it. The taste was amazing and totally filled my mouth and body with joy. My father was not very happy when I then set off to eat so many more from the garden. But oh what a joy to really taste food.

But he wasnt one bit hungry for monkeys! What he wanted was some more of that tasty carrot stew. So off he went to visit the rabbits.". -Kathryn Jackson, The Tawny Scrawny Lion. -.-.-.. For many of us in this part of the world, steamed, puréed carrots are the first proper food-after breast milk and cereal mush-to pass our wee infant lips. Unadorned by salt or butter or freshly-grated nutmeg, strained to remove the slightest lumpy bit, warmed to body temperature and delivered in the tiniest of spoons, carrots are among the first things that tell us what food is.. And then, after a while, we pretty much forget about them.. Well, Id pretty much forgotten about them. And thats terribly sad.. There were the junior-high years, where carrot sticks formed the bulk of my school lunch.

Carrots are root vegetables that grow different parts over 2 years. The orange part grows during the first year. This is the main root of the plant and the carrot will grow only one main root. Carrots are usually harvested for use before the plant begins to flower. If you keep carrots in your kitchen, they might begin to sprout small white roots along the orange root. You cannot grow more carrots from these roots. A carrot does not have seeds inside or on the outside. Carrot seeds come from flowers that are produced on the top of the carrot by a mature plant that has been left in the ground. A mature carrot has a tall stem. The stem produces a cluster of tiny white flowers. The flowers will wither and dry in a birds nest type cluster. The carrot seeds are tiny black dots inside the flower cluster. Carrot seeds are very small; there are about 3,000 seeds in a teaspoon. ...
