The carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus) is a root vegetable, usually orange in color. It originates from Afghanistan, while in ancient Greece it was used for its healing properties and it was known as Stafylinos and mainly as Daucus. Its cultivation in Europe began in the 13th century and at first it was purple, due to a pigment it contained. It is cultivated for its fleshy root in temperate places, mainly during winter, in ideal temperature at 15-18℃. Well drained soil with a lot of moisture is the perfect thing for carrots. Here in Greece, it is mainly cultivated in Macedonia and Central Greece and its known variety is the one with the big-size root and orange color.
