Carrots

In Season: Although peak production runs November through July, carrots are available throughout the entire year These favorite veggies have had plenty of time to become so popular. Originating in Middle Asia in modern day Afghanistan, carrots date back as far as 3,000 years ago. Unlike the characteristic orange color they are known for today, the first carrots were white, yellow, and purple. The modern bright orange color is an indication of the high levels of Vitamin A, which is important for good eyesight, the immune system, and healthy skin and hair.
