Domestic carrots were originally white, purple or yellow. Later varieties were red, deeper yellow and orange.The true, deep orange "modern" carrots were probably developed by Dutch agriculturists in the 15th Century. Orange carrotsprobably arrived from mutations of yellow forms, and then from human selection and development, probably in the Netherlands. It is thought that humans made selections from a gene pool involving yellow rooted eastern carrots, cultivated white-rooted derivatives of wild carrot (grown as medicinal plants since classical times) and wild unselected populations of adjacent Daucus Carota subspecies in Europe and the Mediterranean.Wild carrots were (and still are) white or pinkish roots.The World Carrot Museum has a fully documented history of carrots.
