#REDIRECT [[Carrot]]
In modern times, an [[orange]] vegetable, but during medieval times, was ( I believe) known to most people in antiquity as a white vegetable (like a turnip, but tasting like a carrot) but also (less common?) red, reddish black, orange, yellow and various other shadings were mentioned, especially in the late medieval period.
Carrot grows as a [[conical]] root in the ground, from which grows a green flower stalk. Carrots should not be eaten when still green (unripe).
Carrots were eaten raw or cooked in medeival times. Various [[alcohol]]ic beverages can also be made from carrots, but St Ursula's "carrot wallop" should definately be avoided (unless it's improved lately).
"They (carrots) remain in the human bile gland awaiting a time to be thrown up. Not a nice vege at all."
Various other medieval names exist for carrots, or that include carrots, eg
[[skirret]] (water parsnip), [[pasternak]]es (carrots or parsnip).
