Carrots are not orange!


That's right, you heard me. Centuries ago, carrot breeders, in the name of aesthetics, selected the orange color for the carrot. But alas, the carrot's true color, is purple. Actually, carrots come in black, white, and maroon also. Anyway, Dr. Pike recently brought back the purple carrot and its original nutrients. It has the consistency of an apple, and is sweeter! We've all been deceived! Why would they do this to us?! Anyway, I really want a purple carrot. Read more about it, and see more pictures at the link below:

Grown in Texas! Sean & Jenny, you need to hook me up. ;)

Where in Texas are they grown??? I will send you one! Very useful fact...if your into Trivial Prusuit questions about a carrot's origin. Good to know.

Maybe I will be brave enough to try one! I like orange carrots, maybe purple ones are good too.

Okay, are those carrots for real? Or are they just some fancy computer enhancement thing. They look tasty, nonetheless.
