Organic Washed Carrots (Holland) (1 Kg)The carrot, with its distinctive bright orange colour, is one of the most versatile root vegetables around - a result of its sweet flavour, which means it can be used raw or cooked, in sweet or savoury dishes.
Up to the Middle Ages, all carrots were purple - the orange variety was first developed in 16th-century Holland by patriotic growers who bred it in tribute to the king, William I of Orange.
That old wives tale about carrots helping you see in the dark isnt entirely off-target they are very high in betacarotene, which is an important nutrient in maintaining healthy eyes.
