  Were Carrots always Orange ?  
     
  It is known that carrots were consumed in Afghanistan about 5,000 years ago.  
     
  These carrots were yellow with a purple skin.  
     
  The first orange carrot was developed in Holland during the 16th century.  
     
  These carrots were "created" to be of the same colours of the house ruling the country, the Orange.
